Researchers Find Limit On CPT Violation From Gamma-Ray Bursts
2012-12-07 15:12:11

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Researchers wrote in the journal Physical Review Letters that they have found evidence of a strict limit on CPT violation from polarization of gamma-ray bursts. Photons produced by gamma-ray bursts travel billions of light years to reach the Earth. This makes them excellent probes of space-time structures on extremely small scales. Some quantum gravity theories predict that structures of space-time at extremely short...

In a study published in the journal Nature Physics, researchers report trapping some 300 antihydrogen atoms for a record 16 minutes, a stunning technical feat that promises deeper insights into the mysteries of antimatter. Particles and anti-particles annihilate each other in a small flash of energy when they collide making the study of them extremely difficult. Fourteen-million years ago, at the moment of the big bang, matter and antimatter are believed to have existed in equal quantities....

Researchers at RIKEN, Japan's flagship research institution, have successfully devised the world's first experimental technique for measuring ground-state hyperfine transitions of antihydrogen. By enabling scientists to test fundamental theories of symmetry and gravity, the new technique promises to shed light on some of the most profound mysteries of our universe.
