Nuclear Physics Seminar

Tuesday, October 2nd 2018
11:15 am:
Nuclear Physics Seminar in Tate 301-20
Speaker: Aleksey Cherman, University of Minnesota
Subject: Patricle vortex systems and the nature of cold quark matter.

It is believed that cold dense quark matter is a "color-superconducting" state of matter. What does that mean? Is this sharply different from a standard "confirmed" nuclear superfluid? I'll give a basic overview of recent progress on these formal questions, with a warm up discussion of standard electromagnetic aupercondtivity the answers to the above questions have interesting physical consequences for the quantization of angular momentum of quasiparticle excitations in dense quark matter.
