Latest Quantum chromodynamics Stories
Physicists working with the Large Hadron Collider beauty (LHCb) experiment at CERN have made two new discoveries: subatomic particles which they are describing as cousins to the neutron and proton.
Researchers from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory simulated the birth of the universe using Livermore's 5-petaflop Vulcan high performance computer.
The Large Hadron Collider has already played an essential role in the discovery of the so-called God particle, and now the world’s largest particle collider may have helped scientists discover a new form of matter known as the tetraquark.
A team of international scientists has found the first ever direct evidence of pear-shaped atomic nuclei, a discovery that could shed light on some of the deepest mysteries of the universe.
In September 2012, the Large Hadron Collider conducted a short run of collisions between protons and lead nuclei. The roughly two million events recorded were set to serve as a baseline for lead-lead collisions anticipated for next year. However, these events produced an unexpected result.
Scientists working with the the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at the Brookhaven National Laboratory have observed the first glimpses of a possible boundary separating ordinary nuclear matter.
Scientists working at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider are gaining a better understanding of the primordial universe through experimentation involving the use of heavy ions.
As record-setting heat and wildfires continue to consume Colorado, one team of scientists has created a temperature so hot the Sun would melt.
An international collaboration of scientists has reported a landmark calculation of the decay process of a kaon into two pions, using breakthrough techniques on some of the world's fastest supercomputers.
How liquid can a fluid be?
Strange Matter -- Strange matter (also known as quark matter) is an ultra-dense phase of matter that is theorized to form inside particularly massive neutron stars (which are then known as "strange stars" or "quark stars"). It's theorized that when neutronium is put under sufficient pressure due to the gravitation of a large neutron star, the individual neutrons break down and their constituent quarks form strange matter. Strange matter is composed of strange quarks bound to each...
