CERN Accelerating science


The new results usher a new era of high-precision tests between matter and antimatter.

PUMA: Exploring exotic nuclear phenomena with antimatter

by Alexandre Obertelli (TU Darmstadt, PUMA spokesperson) François Butin (CERN, PUMA project manager)

The proposed experiment would for the first time transport antiprotons trapped at AD/ELENA to ISOLDE where they will be used for nuclear physics experiments.


BASE probes antimatter - dark matter interaction

by Panagiotis Charitos

BASE experiment publishes first results from a direct search for the interacton between dark matter and antimatter, demonstrating the versatility of the experimental setup and paving the way for future measurements.

In a paper published this week in Nature, the ALPHA collaboration reports the most precise direct measurement of antimatter ever made
