A breakthrough experiment here reveals certain measurements about the antimatter which si now calling as the new era of antimatter research. This work is now accomplished after the 20 years of struggle by CERN antimatter. This is now taken as the major research by the CERN antimatter. This is the first measurement of the optical spectrum of antimatter atom.
An atom consists a nucleus which is orbited by the electrons who emit light when they change their path or orbit. The electrons emit light to a specified wavelength and every element has a unique spectrum. Laser observation is a commonly used tool to recognize the characteristics of an atom and molecules. The spokesperson of ALPHA collaboration, Jeffery Hangst tells about the usage of the laser to observe antihydrogen and to determine that if they obey the same law of physics or not.
The light of spectrum of matter and antimatter is compared for the first time by ALPHA. The study tells about the nature of the matter and hence conclude that hydrogen and antihydrogen should have major identical characteristics. Besides this, ALPHA is now thinking to use some more major tools to test the behavior of matter. The experiment at CERN Antiproton center by ALPHA is now helped to produce the antihydrogen atoms and to hold them in a unique magnetic trap.
Thus the usage of the laser is more helpful for the trapping of antihydrogen atoms. Hangst tells that the positively charged atoms like Antiprotons are easy to handle. He further added that the positively charged atoms like Antihydrogen are more difficult to trap or handle and hence they had made this discovery. This will now help the researchers to observe the internal state of antihydrogen with the help of a laser beam. Stay tuned with us for more updates and feeds like this.
