I will first present the vacuum for the e+‐e− field of QED and show how it is modified for baryons in nuclear environment. Then I discuss the possibility of producing new types of nuclear systems by implanting an antibaryon into ordinary nuclei. The structure of nuclei containing one antiproton or antilambda is investigated within the framework of a relativistic mean‐field model. Self‐consistent calculations predict an enhanced binding and considerable compression (4…5ρ0) in such systems as compared with normal nuclei. I present arguments that the life time of such nuclei with respect to the antibaryon annihilation might be long enough for their observation. This yields a mechanism for cold compression.
