Physics Prof and team find clues to antimatter mystery
The international T2K (Tokai to Kamioka) experiment, which includes Physics Professor Sampa Bhadra in the Faculty of Science, has reported new findings that bring scientists one step closer to understanding one of science’s greatest mysteries: why there is more matter than antimatter in the universe.
During the Big Bang, antimatter and matter were created in equal amounts. Although matter and antimatter annihilate when they come into contact with one another, today our universe exists as matter—meaning matter must have won over antimatter somehow. Physicists have struggled to understand how this happened.
T2K is an experiment aimed at unraveling this conundrum by studying neutrinos.
