Evidence for hadronic deconfinement in p̄-p collisions at 1.8 TeV


Journal Article

We have measured deconfined hadronic volumes, 4.4 < V < 13.0 fm3, produced by a one-dimensional (1D) expansion. These volumes are directly proportional to the charged particle pseudorapidity densities 6.75 < dNc/dη < 20.2. The hadronization temperature is T = 179.5±5(syst) MeV. Using Bjorken's 1D model, the hadronization energy density is εF = 1.10±0.26(stat) GeV/fm3 corresponding to an excitation of 24.8±6.2(stat) quark-gluon degrees of freedom. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.
