Could Quantum Energy be the key to Anti-Matter

In modern physics, antimatter is defined as matter which is composed of the antiparticles (or « partners ») of the corresponding particles of ‘ordinary’ matter. Minuscule numbers of antiparticles are generated daily at particle accelerators – total production has been only a few nanograms and in natural processes like cosmic ray collisions and some types of radioactive decay, but only a tiny fraction of these have successfully been bound together in experiments to form anti-atoms. No macroscopic amount of antimatter has ever been assembled due to the extreme cost and difficulty of production and handling.

In theory, a particle and its anti-particle (for example, a proton and an antiproton) have the same mass, but opposite electric charge and other differences in quantum numbers. For example, a proton has positive charge while an antiproton has negative charge. ( WIKIPEDIA )
