Discovering the low energy breaking point for exotic Quark-Gluon Plasma creation

Mapping of nuclear phase changes

From United States Department of Energy July 2, 2023 A hypothesized phase diagram of nuclear matter. New data showing that high collision energies produce a quark-gluon plasma (QGP), whereas lower energy collisions do not, will help scientists draw the boundaries between QGP and the hadronic phase.
