ALPHA's long-standing competitor is another experiment called ATRAP, which works about five meters down the antiproton beam.
In a paper published online in Physical Review Letters November 16, the ATRAP group reports centrifugally separating antiprotons from electrons, which could provide a new way to isolate low-energy antiprotons for making antihydrogen.
Plus, the ATRAP team took another step: They used an electric field to pry apart the exotic atoms' positrons and antiprotons.
