  • Abstract Experiment 864 at the BNL-AGS was designed to search for exotic states of strange quark matter and other rare composite particles. The experiment was commissioned in 1994 and completed its final run in 1998. Here, we present an overview of the experimental results for the production of light nuclei up to A = 7, antiprotons and antideuterons, hypernuclei and production limits on new states of quark matter.
