November 18, 2010: Antimatter Trapped and Stored

The Department’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) announces that atoms of antimatter have been trapped and stored for the first time in a magnetic bottle-like device by the ALPHA collaboration, an international team of scientists working at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research near Geneva, Switzerland. Scientists from LBNL and the University of California at Berkeley made key contributions to the ongoing international effort.
