1  TRZASKA 1991 also give limits in the range ($6.6 - 30){\times }10^{-3}~$eV (95$\%$CL) for ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit A}^{0}}}$ = $1.6 - 2.0~$MeV.
2  FOX 1989 measured positron annihilation with an electron in the source material into two photons and found no signal at $1.062$ MeV ($<$ $9 \times 10^{-5}$ of two-photon annihilation at rest).
3  Similar limits are obtained for ${\mathit m}_{{{\mathit A}^{0}}}$ = $1.045-1.085$ MeV.
