Birth of the QCD plasma in a supersaturated pion vapor

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

5 Scopus citations


An experiment is proposed which might be able to determine whether the QCD deconfining phase transition is first or higher order. The measurement involves the identification of pionic clusters and their distribution as a function of invariant mass in the range 2-12 GeV in ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions.
