Mötesplats Rydberg: Peter Christiansen "The Quark Gluon Plasma: hot, strong, perfect!"

Tuesday, 11 June 2019 from to (Europe/Stockholm)
at Fysiska institutionen-Physics Department ( 1-4-Rydbergsalen - Rydbergsalen )

Today, quarks and gluons are confined inside nucleons. However, in the early hot Universe before nucleons were formed, quarks and gluons formed a different type of deconfined matter called the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP). Luckily, by colliding lead nuclei at LHC at CERN it is possible to achieve similarly high temperatures so that nucleons "melt" into a QGP. This new phase of matter has many interesting properties that will be discussed in this talk.
