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.
The TOTEM collaboration at CERN has uncovered possible evidence for a subatomic three-gluon compound called an odderon, first predicted in 1973.
What are the essential requirements for the formation of a quark–gluon plasma? Do only the most violent, head-on lead–lead (Pb–Pb) interactions at the LHC provide such conditions?
These two results suggest that charmed baryon formation might not be universal, and that the baryon/meson ratio depends on the collision system.
The sixth International Conference on New Frontiers in Physics (ICNFP) took place on 17–29 August in Kolymbari, Crete.
Teams at CERN’s ISOLDE facility and at RIKEN in Japan have found evidence that an exotic isotope of the metallic element nickel (78Ni) is doubly magic, opening a new vista on an important region of ...
In a heavy-ion collision, a longitudinal asymmetry arises due to unequal numbers of participating nucleons from the two colliding nuclei, causing a shift in the centre-of-mass (CM) of the overlapping ...
