The main goal of the AEGIS experiment at the CERN Antiproton Decelerator is testing fundamental laws such as the weak equivalence principle (WEP) and the CPT symmetry. In the first phase of AEGIS, a beam of antihydrogen will be formed whose fall in the gravitational field is measured in a Moirè deflectometer; this will constitute the first test of the WEP with antimatter.

Abstract

The main goal of the AEGIS experiment at the CERN Antiproton Decelerator is testing fundamental laws such as the weak equivalence principle (WEP) and the CPT symmetry. In the first phase of AEGIS, a beam of antihydrogen will be formed whose fall in the gravitational field is measured in a Moirè deflectometer; this will constitute the first test of the WEP with antimatter.
