Antimatter ?

    at Fermi lab they create anti-matter or I guess they don’t create it but they synthesize it , where do they keep it so it doesn't react with regular matter and produce light.

    It's my understanding that the antimatter does react with matter almost immediately in most cases. The researchers study the resultant bursts of radiation to learn what was produced in the collisions.
