Positronic Circuits?

    Electricity is the flow of electrons through an electric circuit, right?

    So can we do the same with positrons? Will there be any difference in the laws we follow of circuits and electricity?

    Thanks

    In order for positrons to flow through circuits we need antimatter circuits which we do not have, all theory and weirdly logic tells us that there will be no difference between the two ways. You could establish some form of energetical flow through a positron cloud althouhg it would be just as spectacular as the electron cloud is, except for the collisions and neutralizations.

    Okay, so it's possible. Would be pretty cool if one could set this up, though.

    Cool maybe, but useless for now. And will be useless for a long time too. We will not live enough to see any.
