The second ingredient that is needed to create antihydrogen are antiprotons. The Antiproton, p, is the antimatter counterpart of a proton. Antiprotons can be produced in collisions involving cosmic rays, but do not occur on earth naturally. That’s why we need to produce them with the accelerators at CERN.
Our latest breakthrough, the first detailed study of one of the hyperfine components of the 1S-2S line in trapped antihydrogen has been published in Nature and is the most precise and most accurate measurement of antimatter to date.
