That is to say, while they possess charge, spin, mass, magnetism , and other complex characteristics, they are nonetheless regarded as pointlike.

Conferences and Meetings on Nuclear Physics
Like quarks, each lepton has an antiparticle with properties that mirror those of its partner the antiparticle of the negatively charged electron is the positive electron, or positron ; that of the neutrino is the antineutrino. In addition to their electric and magnetic properties, quarks participate in both the strong force which binds them together and the weak force which underlies certain forms of radioactivity , while leptons take part in only the weak force. Most of the possible quark combinations, or hadrons, have very short lifetimes, and many of them have never been seen, though additional ones have been observed with each new generation of more powerful particle accelerators.
The quantum fields through which quarks and leptons interact with each other and with themselves consist of particle-like objects called quanta from which quantum mechanics derives its name.

The first known quanta were those of the electromagnetic field ; they are also called photons because light consists of them. A modern unified theory of weak and electromagnetic interactions, known as the electroweak theory , proposes that the weak force involves the exchange of particles about times as massive as protons. Quarks are said to come in three colours—red, blue , and green.
Congratulations to Our Newest APS Fellows
The opposites of these imaginary colours, minus-red, minus-blue, and minus-green, are ascribed to antiquarks. The gluons and quarks themselves, being coloured, are permanently confined deeply bound within the particles of which they are a part , while the colour-neutral composites such as protons can be directly observed.
One consequence of colour confinement is that the observable particles are either electrically neutral or have charges that are integral multiples of the charge of the electron. A number of specific predictions of QCD have been experimentally tested and found correct. Article Media. Info Print Print.
