Latest Quark–gluon plasma Stories
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.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has taken new steps by smashing together lead ions instead of protons to create a "mini-Big Bang."
Researchers working at the worldâ€™s highest-energy particle accelerator on the Franco-Swiss border are nearly set to create the Big Bang on a miniature scale.
Two University of Colorado at Boulder physicists are part of a collaborative team working with the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York that have created the hottest temperature matter ever measured in the universe -- 7.2 trillion degrees Fahrenheit.
Scientists at the US Department of Energyâ€™s Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York report they have created the hottest temperature in the lab -- 4 trillion degrees Celsius -- which is thought to be consistent with actual temperatures that existed when the universe was born.
Scientists at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), a 2.4-mile-circumference particle accelerator at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, report the first hints of profound symmetry transformations in the hot soup of quarks, antiquarks, and gluons produced in RHIC's most energetic collisions.
Perimeter Institute Faculty member Jaume Gomis has won an Early Researcher Award from the Ministry of Research and Innovation (MRI) of Ontario. Early Researcher Awards help promising
Several years after Duke University researchers announced spectacular behavior of a low density ultracold gas cloud, researchers at Brookhaven National Laboratory have observed strikingly similar properties in a very hot and dense plasma "fluid" created to simulate conditions when the universe was about one millionths of a second old.
British poet William Blake once wrote that a world was contained in a grain of sand.
Using high-speed collisions between gold atoms, scientists think they have re-created one of the most mysterious forms of matter in the universe -- quark-gluon plasma. This form of matter was present during the first microsecond of the Big Bang and may still exist at the cores of dense, distant stars.
