Fundamental Physics with Atoms, Molecules, and Light Section Matter-AntiMatter (MAM)

What is the enigmatic dark matter, of which there is about five times as much in the universe as the normal matter familiar to us? And why are planets, stars and galaxies made of matter, whereas antimatter has largely disappeared from the cosmos?

These questions are among the fundamental problems of physics. With a wide range of activities, the MAM (Matter AntiMatter Asymmetry) section aims to experimentally examine which approaches point to a correct explanation of these phenomena.
