Following the recent observation by the LHCb experiment of a doubly charmed baryon Ξ++cc with a large (130 MeV) binding energy between the two charm quarks, Marek Karliner of Tel Aviv University and Jonathan Rosner of the University of Chicago have shown that this opens the door for a quark analog of nuclear fusion. For example, two Λc baryons can fuse to form a Ξ++cc and a neutron, releasing an energy of 12 MeV, with an analogous process for b quarks releasing 138 MeV. While unlikely to ever be a source of useful energy, this novel form of fusion could help in studies of strange hadronic matter.
