In pairticle pheesics, antimaiter is a material componed o antipairticles, which hae the same mass as pairticles o ordinary matter but opposite chairges, as well as ither pairticle properties such as lepton an baryon nummers. Collisions atween pairticles an antipairticles lead tae the annihilation o baith, gin rise tae variable proportions o intense photons (gamma rays), neutrinos, an less massive pairticle–antipairticle pairs. The tot consequence o annihilation is a release o energy available for wirk, proportional tae the tot maiter an antimaiter mass, in accord wi the mass–energy equivalence equation, E = mc2.[1]
