illustration of Hydrogen atom and its antimatter mirror image Researchers Get First Look into Antimatter Atoms
Physicists have probed the properties of whole atoms of antimatter, the "mirror image" of matter, providing the first look inside an antimatter atom and taking a big step on the way to testing standard theories of how the universe operates.
Released  July 30, 2004
The waveguide as it appears within the femtosecond laser amplifier system. Breakthrough Brings Laser Light to New Regions of the Spectrum
Researchers have created a "waveguide" that coaxes extreme-ultraviolet light waves into forming a tightly focused laser-like beam that will allow researchers to "see" tiny features and carve miniature patterns.
