Figure 2, from [182], reports the maximum contribution to the antideuteron flux with respect to the typical unknowns from CR physics, properly calibrated on antiproton AMS-02 data.
The bands reported in Figure 2, while including the effects of solar modulation--typically studied within the force-field approximation [188] and better investigated in [189] by means of numerical tools [190,191]--are most importantly related to the coalescence model adopted to establish antideuteron formation.
