Physicists Are One Step Closer To Cooling Down Antimatter
Physicists are one step closer to cooling down antimatter.
Neutral Result Charges Up Antimatter Research
Scientists of the international ALPHA Collaboration have once again pushed the boundaries of antimatter research with their latest breakthrough studying the properties of antihydrogen. Published today...
Antimatter Not So Different After All
Rice University researchers share the first measurements of the attractive force between antiprotons. The discovery gives physicists new ways to look at the forces that bind matter and antimatter. Ant...
Lawrence Livermore Scientists Move One Step Closer To Mimicking Gamma-Ray Bursts
Using ever more energetic lasers, Lawrence Livermore researchers have produced a record high number of electron-positron pairs, opening exciting opportunities to study extreme astrophysical processes,...
Rogue Antimatter Found In Thunderclouds
When Joseph Dwyer’s aeroplane took a wrong turn into a thundercloud, the mistake paid off: the atmospheric physicist flew not only through a frightening storm but also into an unexpected — and mysteri...
Extreme Cold And Shipwreck Lead
Scientists on an experiment in Italy are looking for a process so rare, it is thought to occur less than once every trillion, trillion years. To find it, they will create the single coldest cubic mete...
Matter will be created from light within a year, claim scientists
In a neat demonstration of E=mc2, physicists believe they can create electrons and positrons from colliding photons
Newly discovered particle is both matter and antimatter at the same time
You probably think of matter and antimatter as mortal enemies, since their equivalent particles (such as protons and antiprotons) normally destroy each other on contact. However, there are now hints t...
Particle detector finds hints of dark matter in space
Researchers at MIT’s Laboratory for Nuclear Science have released new measurements that promise to shed light on the origin of dark matter.
Antimatter - The Riddle of AntiMatter
Explore one of the deepest mysteries about the origin of our universe. According to standard theory, the early moments of the universe were marked by the exp...
Antimatter
This is a segment of a longer video produced by Fermilab Visual Media Services which explores the science at Fermilab through the perspective of the scientists.
What is Antimatter? - YouTube
Nov 14, 2011 ... Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln describes antimatter and its properties. He also explains why antimatter, though a reality, doesn't pose any ...
Antiparticle
Corresponding to most kinds of particles, there is an associated antiparticle with the same mass and opposite charge (including electric charge). For example, the antiparticle of the electron is the p...
Annihilation
Annihilation is defined as "total destruction" or "complete obliteration" of an object; having its root in the Latin nihil (nothing). A literal translation is "to makeinto nothing".In physics, the wor...
Antihydrogen
Antihydrogen is the antimatter counterpart of hydrogen. Whereas the common hydrogen atom is composed of an electron and proton, the antihydrogen atom is made up of a positron and antiproton. Antihydro...

Antiprotonic helium
Antiprotonic helium is a three-body atom composed of an antiproton and an electron orbiting around a helium nucleus. It is thus made partly of matter, and partly of antimatter. The atom is electricall...
Positronium
Positronium (Ps) is a system consisting of an electron and its anti-particle, a positron, bound together into an exotic atom, specifically an onium. The system is unstable: the two particles annihila...
Di-positronium
Di-positronium, or dipositronium, is a molecule consisting of two atoms of positronium. It was predicted to exist in 1946 by John Archibald Wheeler, and subsequently studied theoretically, but was no...
Positronium hydride
Positronium hydride, or hydrogen positride is an exotic molecule consisting of an exotic atom of positronium, which is a positron and electron in combination, and one of hydrogen. Its formula is PsH....

Antimatter weapon
An antimatter weapon is a hypothetical device using antimatter as a power source, a propellant, or an explosive for a weapon. Antimatter weapons are not thought to currently exist due to the cost of p...
