n [U] a form of matter(30) (=substance which the things in the universe are made of) consisting of antiparticles//

antimatter at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Substance composed of elementary particles having the mass and electric charge of ordinary matter (such as electrons and protons), but for which the charge and related magnetic properties are opposite in sign. The existence of antimatter was a consequence of the electron theory of P. Dirac. In 1932 the positron (antielectron) was detected in cosmic rays, followed by the antiproton and the antineutron using particle accelerators. Positrons, antiprotons, and antineutrons, collectively called antiparticles, are the antiparticles of electrons, protons, and neutrons, respectively. When matter and antimatter are in close proximity, annihilation occurs within a fraction of a second, releasing large amounts of energy.
