  • Published 2008


The properties of heavy quark systems change if they are placed in a medium other than the low energy vacuum. In a hot Quark Gluon Plasma J/Ψ particles will melt and not exist as resonant states. Υ’s, however, because of their smaller size and the dominance of the Coulomb potential, will still form as QQ̄ bound states but their properties will shift. In… (More)
