positronium

Positronium is a particle that has no actual nucleus, but has a positive (positron) and negative (electron) particle. The positron is antimatter as it has the opposite charge to an electron, which is negatively charged.

Scientists have found a way to freeze the particle with lazers, which will allow further study.
