A team of researchers from 11 countries, among which scientists from KVI, has recently made a remarkable discovery. By means of collisions of high-energetic electrons with positrons, a new form of subatomic matter has been produced, the 'Zc(3900)'-particle. The existence of this massive particle and its exotic nature have been demonstrated unambiguously by means of the advanced research facility BESIII in Beijing, China. The exact composition of the particle remains a puzzle. It is to be expected that in the coming years further research on the mysterious particle will provide important insights into the formation of the building blocks of matter and the origin of mass.
KVI-scientist Johan Messchendorp is co-ordinator of the activities at BESIII in the field of charmonium physics.
