In a recent STFC newsletter, UK news from CERN, Dr Stephen Hogan describes how he, and a team of international collaborators are investigating the properties of antimatter. The AEGIS experiment at the Antiproton Decelerator, in CERN has been designed to exploit techniques Stephen developed to accelerate antihydrogen atoms in excited states; to transport them and make beams suitable for measurements of the acceleration of antimatter in the Earth's gravitational field.

Details on how to get to UCL by public transport and maps of the campus can be found here.
The nearest underground station is Euston Square station which is serviced by the Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith and City underground lines. Euston Station is also nearby (which is separate to Euston Square station) and is about a three minute walk away. Alternatively you can walk from Kings Cross Station - this will take about 15 minutes.
The Department of Physics is located near the north-eastern corner of the main Bloomsbury site. Entry for visitors is through the main quadrangle off Gower Street. Once in the quadrangle enter the department through the door in the far left-hand corner. The following images show the location of the Physics department.
