Just saw these articles the other day about how scientists have used a UV laser to slow down an anitmatter atom to help them take more measurements of it's qualities. Apparently required them to build a laser with a wavelength of exactly 121.6nm.
Researchers with the CERN-based ALPHA collaboration have announced the world's first laser-based manipulation of antimatter, leveraging a made-in-Canada laser system to cool a sample of antimatter down to near absolute zero. The achievement, detailed in an article published today and featured on...
