LUBBOCK, Texas, June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Positron Corporation a leading molecular imaging healthcare company, specializing in the field of nuclear cardiology announces completion of its first strontium validation effort. In May 2012, Manhattan Isotope Technology (MIT), a Positron subsidiary, successfully processed strontium. The internal analysis of the product demonstrates it meets the Sr-82 purity specifications required for the formulation of Sr-82/Rb-82 generators. MIT has now...

Microwaves Used In First Time Measurement Of Antimatter Atom
2012-03-08 05:43:30

An international team of physicists at CERN (the European Laboratory for Particle Physics) used microwaves to measure and manipulate an atom made of antimatter for the first time ever. While imprecise, the measurement represents an important first step in being able to study antimatter atoms in detail --  a critical part of understanding why the universe is made of matter and not antimatter. "This is the first time that anyone has ever interacted with an antimatter atom," said lead...

Image 1 - California Researchers Hoping To Reveal Secrets of Anti-Gravity
2012-01-30 05:16:30

A team of researchers from the University of California, Riverside (UCR) say they are close to determining whether or not anti-matter exerts a sort of "anti-gravity" in much the same what that ordinary matter exerts regular gravity. In an article published Friday, BBC News reports that, while it is well known that normal matter attracts all other matter in the universe, scientists currently do not know if anti-matter would attract other matter, or repel it. A trio of UCR experts may...

UC Riverside physicists have launched a lab experiment to find out the answer Does antimatter behave differently in gravity than matter? Physicists at the University of California, Riverside have set out to determine the answer. Should they find it, it could explain why the universe seems to have no antimatter and why it is expanding at an ever increasing rate. In the lab, the researchers took the first step towards measuring the free fall of "positronium" — a bound state between...

Physicists at Mainz University significantly improve the calculation method for scattering experiments in particle physics Scientists at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) have set a new record for the calculation of scattering amplitudes. This kind of calculation is used to predict the outcome of accelerator experiments in which high-energy particles collide with one another. However, the calculations become increasingly difficult the greater the number of orders the physicists...

Once regarded as the stuff of science fiction, antimatter"”the mirror image of the ordinary matter in our observable universe"”is now the focus of laboratory studies around the world. While physicists routinely produce antimatter with radioisotopes and particle colliders, cooling these antiparticles and containing them for any length of time is another story. Once antimatter comes into contact with ordinary matter it "annihilates""”or disappears in a flash of gamma...
