Title: Physics With Antihydrogen Atoms    (Colloquia)
Start Date: 04/14/2014
Time: 4:15 pm
Location: 1 LeConte Hall
Speaker: Joel Fajans
Affiliation: Professor of Physics, UC Berkeley
Contact Person: Sarah Wittmer   (510) 644-7155
Details:

Since trapping antihydrogen atoms, the ALPHA collaboration has begun to test fundamental symmetries with anti-atoms.  In this talk I will present spectral measurements of an anti-atom (a test of CPT), a direct limit on matter-antimatter gravity with freefall type measurements (a test of the weak equivalence principle), and a precision charge neutrality test (a novel test of CPT.)
