Turning the light into matter

Thanks to: https://www.quantumdiaries.org
There is a new high-energy particle physics experiment on the horizon.
In 1934 Breit and Wheeler proposed the way to create matter from light by colliding  the protons. And this year some of the physicists from Imperial Colledge London got an idea how to make an experiment that might prove that.  The technology we have today should be sufficient to make this experiment. Now all we have to do is wait and see will they manage to make an experiment, will they manage to make matter from the light.
