Cross-sections are presented, both integrated and differential with respect to the longitudinal energy of the ejected positrons, for the fragmentation of Ps in collisions with Xe at 18 and 30 eV impact energy and compared with available theory. The shapes of the positron spectra are also compared with those measured in collisions with He at the same impact energy.
