Decoding Nuclear Matter: A Two-Dimensional Solution Reveals Neutron Star Secrets

Quarks Line Up in Dense Nuclear Matter

Through US Department of Energy June 29, 2023 In dense nuclear matter, the quarks “line up,” becoming essentially one-dimensional. Calculations that take into account one dimension and time can track how low energy excitations travel through nuclear matter.
