Critical Mass Award

Award winner: Mike Charlton

Institution: Swansea University

Value: £1,975,074

This award will go towards securing Swansea's Atomic Molecular and Laser Physics Group's £2.3 million antihydrogen research programme. The four-year investigation will aim to make precise comparisons between hydrogen and antihydrogen and shed light on the absence of antimatter from the Universe. Professor Charlton said: "We are delighted to receive this prestigious award, which will hopefully enable us to trap antihydrogen long enough for it to be available for spectroscopy."
