Color screening in relativistic heavy ion collisions


Journal Article

We calculate the color screening length in a non-equilibrated gluon gas formed by interacting minijets in relativistic heavy-ion collisions. We show that the screening length is too short at CERN LHC collider energy to permit the formation of independent flux-tubes or strings. The prediction for RHIC energies is somewhat ambiguous. © 1992.
