to the east of the existing gsi research facility (gsi helmholtz center for heavy ion research), The new next-generation accelerator complex, Fair (facility for antiproton
and ion research), Is to be developed.
According to Andreas Mooser, second author of the study and member of RIKEN FSL, "Looking forward, using this technique, we will be able to make similarly precise measurements of the antiproton
at the BASE experiment in CERN, and this will allow us to look for further hints for why there is no antimatter in the universe today.
Nine countries including India have come together to build the Facility for Antiproton
and Ion Research (FAIR).
The single-particle detectors used in the measurements were partly developed by the Riken researchers, some of whom had previously worked on similar traps at CERN's Antiproton
Among the topics are the 600 MeV synchrocyclotron: laying the foundation, the intersecting storage rings: the first hadron collider, the CERN antiproton
program: imagination and audacity rewarded, the large hadron collider: the energy frontier, knowledge and technology: sharing with society, and managing the laboratory and large projects.
During their stay in Geneva, the Sri Lankan physicists familiarized themselves with the several facilities in CERN, including the CERN Data Centre, the Antiproton
Decelerator, the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS), the Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) Lab and the S'Cool lab for High School students.
that the positron is positively charged and that the antiproton
carries a negative charge.
This new research, undertaken by the ALPHA experiment at CERN's Antiproton
Decelerator (AD) in Geneva, is the first time that the electric charge of an anti-atom has been measured to high precision.
6 billion [euro] international project, known as the Facility for Antiproton
and Ion Research (Fair), will help scientists to better understand the universe, and promises to become for nuclear physics what Cern is to particle physics.
A hydrogen atom consists of a proton and an electron, and its antimatter counterpart, antihydrogen, consists of a positron and an antiproton
, both with the opposite charge of the electron and proton respectively.
Antihydrogen is made of an antiproton
and a positron.
An antihydrogen atom is made from a negatively charged antiproton
and a positively charged positron, the antimatter counterpart of the electron.
