  • Special PET Scans Seeking Symmetry in Quark-Gluon Plasma

    July 23, 2014

    During the 496th Brookhaven Lecture, Lijuan Ruan explained how she uses electron-positron tomography from quark-antiquark annihilations to study chiral symmetry, a characteristic that "broke" to form 99 percent of the visible mass in the universe and is thought to be restored during ion collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider.
