Heavy Particles Get Caught Up in the Flow

New, high-precision measurements of the subatomic mix of particles produced by smashing gold nuclei together benefit from a Berkeley Lab-developed device known as the “Heavy Flavor Tracker.” The collisions free the quarks and gluons from their confinement within ordinary particles so their interactions, and the force that holds them together, can be studied by nuclear physicists.
