The Production and Study of Antiprotons and Cold Antihydrogen

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

AFOSR support launched and sustains this unique antimatter research study of antiprotons and antihydrogen,the annihilation of which produce the maximum possible energy per unit mass. This is the sole US-led research effort with low energy antiprotons. The practical goal is developing the unusual techniques required to produce and store atoms made entirely of antimatter, given that the slightest encounter with ordinary matter turns all their mass into energy as they annihilate.
