  • Outside the electromagnetic calorimeter is the "hadronic" calorimeter which detects the energy left by charged pions and other hadrons, particles which contain quarks, such as protons, neutrons, kaons, and many others.

  • They also know that it smears hadronic information, but electromagnetic stuff passes through unscattered.

    Progress in QCD Pheno for RHIC? « Imaginary Potential

  • It is a very positive development that new connections between string theory and other areas have developed - heavy ion physics, low energy hadronic physics, LHC physics, cosmology, mathematics, general relativity, and many areas of quantum field theory - and that many young people are taking advantage of the opportunity to cross these lines, and in both directions.

  • Both of these things have been done in lattice QCD; there is a phase transition for bare coupling g - 0 where a continuum limit can be defined, and the hadronic masses etc which have been extracted so far are in very good agreement with experiment.

    String Theory is Losing the Public Debate

  • The neutrons are mostly produced by primary hadronic interactions in the first 1′€2 λint of the atmosphere and therefore measure the changes in cosmic ray intensity at altitudes above about 13 km.

  • “Hadronic” means “made of quarks”; almost nobody thinks the dark matter is hadronic, and in fact it would be extremely difficult to reconcile that idea with primordial nucleosynthesis.

    Danger, Phil Anderson

  • No one has much clue as to what it is but it seems to have to be assumed it is hadronic, otherwise why would it be anything as close as a factor 30 to the protons?

    Danger, Phil Anderson

  • In my previous experiment at LEP, we accumulated about 4 million hadronic Z decays (among other events).

    LHC Factoids

  • Supposedly, muons are the only particle that can travel through the detector without showering and stopping in the calorimeters, but sometimes very energetic pions can make it through the hadronic calorimeter and punch through into the muon chambers.

  • Stan and Glennys showed that the probability of scattering between two mesons and/or baryons, A+B to C+D, is proportional to (or scales with) the total number of constituent particles bound inside the inital and final hadronic states A, B, C, and D.
