The AEgIS Experiment

The AEgIS experiment (Antimatter Experiment: Gravity, Interferometry, Spectroscopy) at CERN is designed to examine the effects of gravity on antimatter.

CAST opens a new window into dark energy and dark matter after 11 years of operation and continuous renewal.

by Dieter Hoffmann (TU-Darmstadt) & Konstantin Zioutas (University of Patras)

CAST is searching for these particles with a telescope designed to detect axions from the Sun. It uses an unexpected hybrid of equipment from particle physics and astronomy.
