  • ALPHA Experiment at Cern - Photo © CERN Mapping out the properties of antimatter 2020-02-21 Why does anything exist? That is really the fundamental question we try to answer through high-precision studies of antimatter. All matter that builds up the universe we see should really have been annihilated through contact with it mirror image – antimatter. Clearly, this has not happened, which is one of the great still unsolved mysteries of Physics.

16 profile research areas at Stockholm University

Stockholm University is a prominent research university characterised by its independent basic research. The university has identified 16 profile areas within the broad research spectrum. The research within three out of these profile areas is performed at the Department of Physics.
