Developments for pulsed antihydrogen production towards direct gravitational measurement on antimatter

A main scientific goal of the AE g ¯ IS experiment is the direct measurement of the Earth’s local gravitational acceleration g on antihydrogen. The Weak Equivalence Principle is a foundation of

Pulsed production of antihydrogen

Antihydrogen atoms with K or sub-K temperature are a powerful tool to precisely probe the validity of fundamental physics laws and the design of highly sensitive experiments needs antihydrogen with

Nonlinear Dynamics of Electrons in Electromagnetic and Gravitational Fields

Abstract The nonlinear dynamics of positrons in modified theories is considered in light of new hypotheses regarding the mass of charged particles and the mass of the graviton. Laws of the vertical



Characterization of the AEgIS scintillating fiber detector FACT for antihydrogen detection

The Antimatter Experiment: Gravity, Interferometry, Spectroscopy (AEgIS) at the Antiproton Decelerator at CERN has the goal to produce antihydrogen atoms (H̄) at low temperatures based on positronium

Particle tracking at cryogenic temperatures: the Fast Annihilation Cryogenic Tracking (FACT) detector for the AEgIS antimatter gravity experiment

The AEgIS experiment is an interdisciplinary collaboration between atomic, plasma and particle physicists, with the scientific goal of performing the first precision measurement of the Earth's

Probing antimatter gravity – The AEGIS experiment at CERN

The weak equivalence principle states that the motion of a body in a gravitational field is independent of its structure or composition. This postulate of general relativity has been tested to very

A moiré deflectometer for antimatter

A successful extension of a tool from atom optics—the moiré deflectometer—for a measurement of the acceleration of slow antiprotons, using two identical transmission gratings and a spatially resolving emulsion detector for antiproton annihilations.

AEg̅IS latest results

The validity of the Weak Equivalence Principle (WEP) as predicted by General Relativity has been tested up to astounding precision using ordinary matter. The lack hitherto of a stable source of a

Plasma and trap-based techniques for science with positrons

In recent years, there has been a wealth of new science involving low-energy antimatter (i.e., positrons and antiprotons) at energies ranging from 10 to less than 10 eV. Much of this progress has
