2021.04.12 The matter-antimatter asymmetry in the Universe still remains one of the unexplained mysteries of nature. Already in the 1950’s Gell-Mann and Pais predicted that neutral particles should undergo particle-antiparticle oscillations, constantly alternating their nature. It makes one of the fundamental predictions of the Standard Model (SM) describing elementary constituents of matter and their interactions. To date, matter-antimatter oscillations have been observed for several neutral particles.
