The ALPHA Collaboration consists on members from around the globe. There is always a team on CERN site, but we are connecting with many more people online to get the most of our collaboration.

ALPHA Collaboration - May 11th 2020
On February 19, 2020, ALPHA published the first investigation of the fine structure of Antihydrogen.
In 2018 the ALPHA Experiment was expanded with the addition of ALPHA-g. Look at timelapse videos to see the massive changes, from installation to beamline!
The ALPHA collaboration has for the first time observed single-photon excitation of antihydrogen atoms from the ground (1S) state to the 2P state using 121nm pulsed laser light - the so-called lyman-alpha line of the Lyman series.
