E862: Observation of Antihydrogen Atoms

Antihydrogen production has been observed at Fermilab. Experiment 862 collected data in 1996 and 1997. A total of 99 antihydrogen atoms were observed, with essentially no background. The results were published in Physical Review Letters in the spring of 1998.

Beyond E862: Antihydrogen Spectroscopy

It may be possible to make spectroscopic measurements using antihydrogen atoms produced in the Fermilab Antiproton Source. The outline of an experiment has been published in Physical Review D.
