The ASACUSA collaboration is developing methods to extract and transport antiprotons at 20 eV adiabatically for an efficient production of cold antihydrogen atoms using a direct injection scheme. We successfully observed a high production rate of antihydrogen atoms immediately after the mixing of antiprotons.
