An antimatter flow from the cusp trap

We have succeeded in producing antihydrogen beams for the first time. The results are published in an Open Access paper in Nature Communications.

Positron record

Image of the 70 million positrons extracted from the CUSP trap onto an MCP detector. A 10 fold improvement in positron intensity compared to the 2011 campaign. Positrons were also accumulated 10 times faster as compared to last years campaign. Both improvements lead to a higher antihydrogen production rate.
