04.08.2014 A Moiré Deflectometer for Antimatter

The AEgIS experiment reported on a first successful employment of a Moiré deflectometer to observe the shift of an antiproton beam in a weak magnetic field (~10 Gauss). The results have been published by Nature Communications and represent an important step towards a similar measurement with electrically neutral anti-hydrogen. This is the final goal of the collaboration, aiming at the first measurement of the gravitational acceleration of anti-matter.

The Laboratory for High Energy Physics (LHEP) is a division of the Physics Institute at the University of Bern, Switzerland.
We conduct research in the field of experimental particle physics. The six main subjects are:

The LHEP has also been involved in experiments on low energy QCD studies, strange-matter, quark-gluon plasma, etc.
