Abstract (de)

The main goal of the \{AEgIS\} experiment at \{CERN\} is to test the weak equivalence principle for antimatter. We will measure the Earth's gravitational acceleration g ¯ with antihydrogen atoms being launched in a horizontal vacuum tube and traversing a moiré deflectometer. We intend to use a position sensitive device made of nuclear emulsions (combined with a time-of-flight detector such as silicon μ - strips ) to measure precisely their annihilation points at the end of the tube. The goal is to determine g ¯ with a 1% relative accuracy. In 2012 we tested emulsion films in vacuum and at room temperature with low energy antiprotons from the \{CERN\} antiproton decelerator. First results on the expected performance for \{AEgIS\} are presented
