I analyse the impact of the recent measurement of kaonic hydrogen X rays by the SIDDHARTA collaboration on the allowed ranges for the kaon-deuteron scattering length in the framework of non-relativistic effective field theory.

Hypernuclear research will be one of the main topics addressed by the PANDA experiment at the planned Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research FAIR at Darmstadt, Germany. A copious production of double Lambda-hypernuclei at a dedicated internal target in the stored antiproton beam is expected, which will enable the high-precision gamma-spectroscopy of double strange systems for the first...

The precision spectroscopy and decay properties of exotic atoms, such as antihydrogen and true muonium provide important tests of quantum electrodynamics as well as fundamental symmetries of the Standard Model. The production mechanisms for such exotic atoms are also of great interest, since they have important implications for analogous phenomena in hadron physics. For example, the...
