Achievements and prospects at Jefferson Lab’s electron facility.
Techniques to shrink the beams of the heaviest ions ever used in a collider.
Harald Fritzsch, one of the pioneers of quantum chromodynamics, recalls some of the background to the development of the theory 40 years ago.
Results from a multifaceted heavy-ion programme.
How the experiment employs an arsenal of techniques.
The first direct observation of the suppression of charmed mesons at high transverse-momentum in head-on nucleus–nucleus collisions indicates that charm quarks suffer a strong loss of energy in hot...
Fragmentation of heavy nuclei provides beams of light ions at CERN.
Analysis of early results from both nucleus–nucleus and proton–proton collisions at the LHC indicate that a final answer on the fate of the J/ψ inside a hot QGP seems to be within reach.
A unique tool for exploring low-energy hadron interactions.
On the trail from the SPS to RHIC to the LHC – and back to the SPS.
