It has been proposed that strong electromagnetic fields produced in the early stages of heavy-ion collisions can lead to splitting of the rapidity-odd directed flow of positive and negative hadrons. For light hadrons, the interpretation of such measurements is complicated by the low magnitude of directed flow as well as by ambiguities arising from transported quarks. To overcome these complications, we propose measurements using only hadrons carrying produced quarks (ū, d̄, s, s̄). We discuss…

Probing the effects of strong electromagnetic fields with charge-dependent directed flow in Pb-Pb collisions at the LHC
The first measurement at the LHC of charge-dependent directed flow (v1) relative to the spectator plane is presented for Pb–Pb collisions at √ sNN = 5.02 TeV. Results are reported for charged hadrons

Global Polarization of Ξ and Ω Hyperons in Au+Au Collisions at sqrt[s_{NN}]=200  GeV.
TLDR
The global polarization of Ξ and Ω hyperons has been measured for the first time in Au+Au collisions at sqrt[s_{NN}]=200  GeV and is found to follow the centrality dependence of the vorticity predicted in the model, increasing toward more peripheral collisions.
