Estimate the equipment and operational costs for antilithium production

With all of the above work completed, design a series of validation experiments proving the feasibility of antilithium nucleosynthesis. In order to minimize costs, these experiments will work with normal matter instead of antimatter. The series of experiments includes:

⇒ Build two proton storage rings in order to demonstrate the production of a beam of deuterons
⇒ Build a deuteron storage ring intersecting with a proton storage ring to demonstrate the production of a beam of helium-3 nuclei
⇒ Build a helium-3 storage ring intersecting with a deuteron storage ring to demonstrate the production of a beam of helium-4 nuclei
⇒ Build a proton recovery beam line for capture of proton produced in the production of helium-4 nuclei
⇒ Build a helium-4 storage ring intersecting with a helium-3 storage ring to demonstrate the production of a beam of beryllium-7 nuclei
⇒ Build a trap for the storage and production of singly-ionized beryllium-7 atoms
⇒ Build a separate trap for the long-term storage of gram-quantities of lithium-7
