    We are building the SOPHI experiment in Saclay, which is a device based on a small 5 MeV electron linac [1] to produce positrons via pair production on a tungsten target. This device should provide 108 slow e+/s, i.e. a factor 300 greater than the strongest activity Na22 based setup. The SOPHI...
