    It was shown that the spectra of angular correlation of annihilation radiation in porous silicon are approximated well by a parabola ( I p) and two Gaussians ( I g1, I g2). The narrow Gaussian component I g1 is most likely due to the annihilation of localized parapositronium in pores. The full...
