Mini antimatter accelerator to open doors to particle physics mysteries

Particle accelerators have plenty to teach us about the mysterious forces and matter that makes up the universe, but these facilities aren’t exactly portable, involving kilometers of tunnels and equipment. Now, researchers at Imperial College London have developed a new way to accelerate antimatter particles using common equipment already found in many labs, in a much smaller space…
