Why is there an abundance of matter compared to antimatter in the Universe? This question has stymied physicists for years, but researchers at York University, along with other Canadian institutions as part of the international Tokai-to-Kamioka (T2K) Collaboration, have found neutrinos may hold the answer.
TORONTO, December 19, 2016 – An international collaboration, including York University, has successfully shone a laser on antimatter atoms to come up with the first successful spectroscopic measurement. The Big Bang theory requires equal amounts of matter and antimatter to have been created at the beginning of time, but there is little antimatter in the […]
TORONTO, January 20, 2016 – Scientists of the international ALPHA Collaboration have once again pushed the boundaries of antimatter research with their latest breakthrough studying the properties of antihydrogen. Published today in the prestigious journal Nature, the collaboration’s result improved the measurement of the charge of antihydrogen, essentially zero, by a factor of 20. Their […]
