Exotic matter produced in neutron-star mergers
PARTICLES AND ACCELERATORS
Abstract: Neutron stars are the densest objects in our universe that we can directly observe. In their cores, different particles from the ones present in atomic nuclei, protons and neutrons, can exist. These particles are hyperons, that contain non-zero strangeness, and possibly quarks, some of them also strange. In the extreme case that neutron stars merge, the density increases even further to possibly more than 10 times the density of atomic nuclei. In addition, the temperature in mergers can be much higher than the one generated in the supernova explosions that create neutron stars, approaching the temperatures generated in energetic par ...
