Photos of the Day: COSY Accelerator: Quarks in 6-Packs
A glimpse into the inside of the WASA detector: the COSY accelerator in combination with this detector, which was transferred from Uppsala in Sweden to Jülich in 2005/2006, was the first instrument to enable the extremely precise measurements. (Forschungszentrum Jülich)
The Jülich accelerator COSY (cooler synchrotron) with a circumference of around 180 meters provides high-precision beams of spin-polarized protons and deuterons for experiments. (Forschungszentrum Jülich)
For a long time, physicists were only able to reliably verify two different classes of hadrons: baryons and mesons. Experiments performed at Jülich's accelerator COSY have now shown that, in fact, another class of exotic particles made up of six quarks exists. (Forschungszentrum Jülich/SeitenPlan)
