Challenges in experiment-machine interfacing takes AVA Fellows to Slovenia

Antimatter experiments address some of the most fundamental questions in science by studying the building bricks of nature. Measurements are currently carried out at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland and include laser spectroscopy on antihydrogen as well as gravity measurements. These aim a

PRL on new sensor application published

A truly bold idea was proposed in April 2018. In order to improve existing simulation models of electrostatic beam transfer lines that find application in low energy antiproton and ion beam facilities around the world, a method should be established to measure the three-dimensional el

Accelerator designers met at GSI to discuss facility optimization

The Antiproton Decelerator (AD) and the Extra Low ENergy Antiproton (ELENA) rings are unique facilities at CERN designed to trap, store and facilitate antimatter research. They help scientists understand fundamental properties of antimatter and to advance fundamental scientific knowle

“A Cool Investigation into Antiproton Beam Dynamics”

A new paper published in Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics A will help scientists provide higher quality antiproton beams to experiments at CERN and antimatter facilities across the world. “Non-Gaussian beam dynamics in low energy antiproton storage rings” (J. Resta-López et.

Antihydrogen – A Comprehensive Review

Antimatter, often the subject of science fiction on account of its conversion to energy when it comes in contact with matter, is very real and at the center of one of the great mysteries of physics. Current theory would predict that the universe should have been created equal parts ma
