A Times' clone that distinguishes between α and a

Postby user49915 » Thu Nov 28, 2019 9:32 pm

Sometimes we wish to typeset Reo timed data streams. Following §12 of Arbab's http://homepages.cwi.nl/~farhad/MSCS03Reo.pdf , we write ⟨α, a⟩:
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \documentclass{standalone}
  2. \usepackage{unicode-math}
  3. \setmathfont[Ligatures=TeX]{TeX Gyre Termes Math}%%% Using Times (more realistically: a Times' clone) is a must.
  4. %\setmathfont[Ligatures=TeX]{CambriaMath.ttf}%%% Not Times, but is not better anyway
  5. \begin{document}
  6. \(\langle \alpha,a\rangle\)
  7. \end{document}

The result given by xelatex or lualatex, is, erm, no better than in Arbab's paper:

Is there any Times' clone as TTF or OTF that provides a better distinction between the two symbols?
