Quantum Chromodynamics

The laws of sub atomic physics suggests that individual quarks that are never seen in the wild; they always travel around in two’s or three’s. At high temperatures, however—such as high-energy particle collider—protons and neutrons are thought to split into a soup, or plasma, of individual quarks and gluons, before cooling and recombining into ordinary matter. That is what QCD predicts, at any rate. Since 1994, an international team of researchers at CERN, the European laboratory for particle physics in Geneva, has been smashing lead nuclei together and then combing through the hail of subatomic particles that result from these collisions to look for evidence of quark-gluon plasma. On February 10, 2000 the CERN researchers announced the analysis of the results of seven separate types of collision collectively provides evidence of the creation for the first time. For a fraction of a second they had, in other words, recreated the conditions that prevailed just after the Big Bang. Admittedly, this declaration of victory came with several provisos. Ulrich Heinz, a theoretical physicist at CERN, says that more experiments at higher energies will be needed to verify the results. But, having cranked up their accelerators to achieve the most energetic collisions possible, the CERN team can go no further. So, the announcement also signaled a passing of the torch to the new Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at the Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island, New York, which starts an experimental programme at higher energies later this year.
