This winter, CERN's LEP pit formed the backdrop for an unusual theatrical performance portraying Paul Dirac's mathematical discovery of antimatter symmetry.
Antiprotons have been a highlight of close-of-the-century physics. CERN's Antiproton Decelerator will continue this tradition into the 21st century.
A recent workshop in Japan set the scene for a range of experiments at CERN's AD machine, which will synthesize and explore atoms of antimatter. John Eades reports.
After a three-year pause, antiproton physics gets under way later this year at CERN using the new Antiproton Decelerator ring. These articles look at the AD and its physics programme.
Physics with antiparticles is difficult, but one trick is to replace atomic electrons by antiprotons. The resulting compact atoms are useful antiparticle laboratories.
A major antiproton experiment at CERN's Antiproton Decelerator is currently lining up an impressive array of techniques to investigate the interaction of antiprotons with atoms.
