  • Raising the (G)bar for antimatter exploration March 17, 2017
    Iva Raynova Installation of the GBAR linac in its shielding bunker. The electrons accelerated to 10 MeV toward a target will produce the positrons that are necessary to form antihydrogen with the antiprotons coming from the ELENA decelerator. (Image: Max Brice/CERN) The absence of antimatter in the universe is a long-standing jigsaw puzzle in physics. […]
