Sorry, no etymologies found.
In a hypertriton, one of the neutrons is replaced by a particle called a lambda hyperon, with one "up," one "down" and one "strange" quark.
A hypertriton was observed for a fleeting moment in a lab experiment about 50 years ago, Calderon said.
The antihypertriton, as its name suggests, is a hypertriton in which the up, down and strange quarks are replaced with antimatter equivalents (anti-up, anti-down and anti-strange quarks).
Analysis of the hypertriton data was by Jinhui Chen, Kent State University (currently at Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics).
M Cyclotron Institute, along with numerous researchers from universities and labs all over the world, have created the anti-hypertriton - a never-before-seen particle - by colliding gold nuclei at extremely high speeds.
