Speakers: Dr Dirk Peter van der Werf

Antimatter sounds like something out of a science fiction movie, but for modern particle physicists antimatter is not more difficult to understand than ordinary matter. This talk will deal with these concepts, and will try to answer questions such as: what is antimatter? does it exist? what happens when matter and antimatter meet? why is our universe made up almost entirely of matter.
The programme is specifically designed to appeal to students of Physics at A-level. Tickets are not required. However, if you are planning to bring a large party (more than about 20 students) it would be advisable to contact the Secretary beforehand.
