Latest Quark–gluon plasma Stories
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.
In order to measure the shortest light pulses ever created, physicists plan to convert the CERN particle collider in Geneva, Switzerland into the planet's most accurate stop watch by 2018.
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.
How liquid can a fluid be?
Researchers at Switzerland’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are setting aside four weeks to investigate the conditions of the early universe in more detail than ever before and taking a break from searching for the Higgs boson.
By comparing theory with data from STAR, Berkeley Lab scientists and their colleagues map phase changes in the quark-gluon plasma.
Directors of the CERN research center said that new data on the origins of the universe is pouring in so quickly that physicists may extend the current opening phase of their "Big Bang" project to the end of 2012.
After less than three weeks of heavy-ion running, the three experiments studying lead ion collisions at the LHC have already brought new insight into matter as it would have existed in the very first instants of the Universeâ€™s life.
