Due to their short lifetimes, they decay when the system is still dense and the decay products scatter in the hadron gas, reducing the observed number of decays.
In contrast to strongly interacting hadronic probes, dielectrons provide an unperturbed view into the quark–gluon plasma.
The LHCb fixed-target system, known as SMOG, injects a small amount of noble gas inside the LHC beam pipe.
The National Academy of Sciences in the US finds a compelling scientific case for an advanced collider that would reveal how visible matter emerges from fundamental quarks and gluons.
The ALICE collaboration has released a new measurement of the production of D mesons.
Some 450 researchers from around the world headed to historic Bologna to attend the sixth Large Hadron Collider Physics conference.
The $338 million upgrade has tripled CEBAF’s original operating energy.
One of the key goals in exploring the properties of QCD matter is to determine the minimum value of the shear viscosity to entropy density ratio (η/s) for an ideal fluid.
The large centre-of-mass energy and luminosity of the LHC have made possible the first measurements of electroweak-boson production in ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions.
In Pb-Pb collisions, the spectra are modified by the energy loss that the partons suffer when propagating in the quark-gluon plasma.
