Description

It has been 20 years since the start of the Antiproton Decelerator (AD) facility at CERN. During this time, tremendous progress has been made in synthesizing, trapping, and interrogating cold antihydrogen atoms. The field of antihydrogen physics has now arguably advanced from the proof-of-principle stage to the precision physics stage. This talk will review recent progress, with some focus on the results from the ALPHA experiment. We will also discuss new prospects with ELENA, an upgrade to the AD facility currently under construction at CERN.
