Antihydrogen atoms (H¯) are confined in an Ioffe trap for 15-1000 s-long enough to ensure that they reach their ground state. Though reproducibility challenges remain in making large numbers of cold antiprotons (p¯) and positrons (e(+)) interact, 5±1 simultaneously confined ground-state atoms are produced and observed on average, substantially more than previously reported. Increases in the number of simultaneously trapped H¯ are critical if laser cooling of trapped H¯ is to be demonstrated and… Expand
Advances in Antihydrogen Physics
The experimental progress in the creation of cold antihydrogen atoms by the controlled combination of positrons and antiprotons is reviewed, some of the motivation for studying basic aspects of antimatter physics are outlined and an outlook of where the field might expect to go in the coming years is provided.

Stimulated decay and formation of antihydrogen atoms
Antihydrogen atoms are routinely formed at the Antiproton Decelerator at CERN in a wide range of Rydberg states. To perform precision measurements, experiments rely on ground state antimatter atomsExpand
Towards a spin polarized antihydrogen beam
The ASACUSA collaboration has developed a cusp trap scheme to realize an in-flight high precision microwave spectroscopy of ground-state hyperfine splitting of antihydrogen ( H̄) for a stringent testExpand
Antihydrogen accumulation for fundamental symmetry tests
An efficient and high-precision method for trapping and stacking antihydrogen by using controlled plasma is demonstrated, with a record of 54 detected annihilation events from a single release of the trapped anti-atoms accumulated from five consecutive cycles. Expand
Electron-cooled accumulation of 4 × 10 9 positrons for production and storage of antihydrogen atoms
Four billion positrons (e+) are accumulated in a Penning–Ioffe trap apparatus at 1.2 K and <6 × 10−17 Torr. This is the largest number of positrons ever held in a Penning trap. The e+ are cooled byExpand
On the formation of trappable antihydrogen
The formation of antihydrogen atoms from antiprotons injected into a positron plasma is simulated, focussing on the fraction that fulfil the conditions necessary for confinement of anti-atoms in aExpand
Aspects of 1S-2S spectroscopy of trapped antihydrogen atoms
Antihydrogen atoms are now routinely trapped in small numbers. One of the purposes of this effort is to make precision comparisons of the 1S-2S transition in hydrogen and antihydrogen as a precisionExpand
A source of antihydrogen for in-flight hyperfine spectroscopy
This work reports the development of an antihydrogen source using a cusp trap for in-flight spectroscopy, a major step towards precision spectroscopic of the ground-state hyperfine splitting of antiHydrogen using Rabi-like beam spectroscope. Expand
A proposal for laser cooling antihydrogen atoms
We present a scheme for laser cooling applicable to an extremely dilute sample of magnetically trapped antihydrogen atoms ( ¯ H). Exploiting and controlling the dynamical coupling between the ¯ H’sExpand
Optical trapping of antihydrogen towards an atomic anti-clock
