    It can work with other boson too provided the boson is neutral Source->http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pair_production

    example. an electron and its antiparticle, the positron, may be created. This is allowed, provided there is enough energy available to create the pair – at least the total rest mass energy of the two particles – and that the situation allows both energy and momentum to be conserved.
