I know that a flow of electrons is electricity, but what if you had a flow of positrons? Would it be like antielectricity? And what would it do? What would the opposite of electricity do?

You would be able to create an android like Data in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

What is it made out of?
But, seriously, what would happen?

Since I believe matter and anti-matter annihilate each other, we assume the positrons are contained in a system of antimatter somehow shielded from us. Positron flow would then embody current just as electron flow does in the realm of matter. Perhaps anti-semiconductors would exist from which anti-people could construct positronic circuits. I'd guess these would behave the same - the mass of positrons is the same as electrons, and the effective mass in anti-semiconductors would (I'm guessing) be the same, so equations for circuit design would be similar.

A positron is an anti-electron and would annhilate with an electron if it ever contacted normal matter such as in a copper wire. In a environment composed entirely of antimatter, I guess it would exhibit properties exactly like an electron but with a positive charge, but this has never been experimentally proven. Perhaps a theoretical physicist here can add something else...

Yeah, I know that it would annihilate, I meant in an "anti-conducto."

Friend,

A positron can flow through p-doped elements without being annahilated. It happens in solarpanels too. Since when a photon hits a metal plate it releases positron's and electron's the p doped layer is above n doped to avoid annahilation at a large scale( yes it can not be completly avoided)
but the better the layers quality the less annahilation. those are then transported to certain machines that by giving charges power a magnet which moves coils and type of converts positrons to protons( the wire from a panel to the machine is made of p type for positive and n type for negative) I hope this helps you. also, if you need more on this ask me( This is my only speciality)
