Nuclear Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"Thermal Conductivity Of Quark Matter In The CFL Phase"

Presented by Jingyi Chao, North Carolina State University

Friday, July 23, 2010, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

I briefly review the formation of color superconductivity which happen in compact stars. Below the temperature scale set by the gap in the quark spectrum, transport properties are determined by collective modes. We compute the thermal conductivity, $\kappa$, of color-flavor locked (CFL) quark matter in the frame of kinetics theory. We present and compare the result with previous estimates. We also conclude a CFL quark matter core of the compact star becomes isothermal on a timescale of a few seconds.
