  • Exploring the Small Size Limit of Quark Gluon Plasma

    July 15, 2014

    During the 2014 Sambamurti Lecture, physicist Anne Sickles discussed how correlations between particles created during collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) are being used to determine the properties of matter itself. She also explained how physicists, including those using the PHENIX detector at RHIC, are exploring the geometry of the nuclei's impact zones to determine just how small quark-gluon plasma can be.
