Antimatter study to benefit from recipe for ten-fold spatial compression of plasma

(Springer) An international team of physicists studying antimatter have now derived an improved way of spatially compressing a state of matter called non-neutral plasma, which consists of both antimatter and matter particles. In a new EPJ D study, the team achieved a ten-fold compression of the size of the antiparticle cloud, down to a radius of only 0.17 mm. This will contribute to the first direct measurement of the gravitational effect on an antimatter system.
