ASACUSA’s antihydrogen research attracts grants

Eberhard Widmann, director of the Stefan Meyer Institute for Subatomic Physics of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, has received a European Research Council Advanced Grant for his research on antihydrogen within the ASACUSA collaboration at the Antimatter Decelerator (AD) at CERN. The grant focuses on ASACUSA’s primary future direction, the measurement of the ground-state hyperfine structure of antihydrogen. It builds on the collaboration’s success one year ago when they made antihydrogen for the first time in their cusp trap.
