New method to detect rotation in high-energy heavy-ion collisions
MetadataShow full item record
With increasing beam energies the angular momentum of the fireball in peripheral heavy-ion collisions increases, and the proposed differential Hanbury Brown and Twiss analysis is able to estimate this angular momentum quantitatively. The method detects specific space-time correlation patterns, which are connected to rotation.
