ASACUSA (CERN)

ASACUSA (Atomic Spectroscopy And Collisions Using Slow Antiprotons)

ASACUSA is an experiment located at CERN that studies the fundamental symmetries between matter and antimatter by precision spectroscopy of atoms containing an antiproton (the antimatter equivalent of the proton). The experiments focused in particular on hybrid atoms (antiprotonic helium), as well as pure antiatoms (antihydrogen). It also studies the interactions that occur during collisions between matter and antimatter. The Como Positron lab participates to this experiment.
