Abstract A slow-positron source has been installed in the therminal of an electrostatic 6.5 MeV accelerator and provides a monoenergetic positron beam in the few-MeV range. It will be used to operate a “fast” positron lifetime spectrometer based onβ + γ coincidences. The properties of the beam, the expected performance of the spectrometer, its advantages over conventionalγγ lifetime measurements, a number of intended applications, as well as recent positron-electron scattering experiments and plans for positron channelling and channelling-radiation studies are outlined.
