Prospects for the study of baryon-rich matter at new facilities
2019 September 19
In the next decade, several new accelerator facilities will come into operation, which will offer unprecedented opportunities for the experimental investigation of strongly interacting matter at high net-baryon densities as created in nucleus-nucleus collisions at moderate energies. The new experiments will complement existing and running experiments in this field and enhance the physics reach with increased rate capabilities. In this article, we give an overview of the facilities and experiments currently under construction, compare their capabilities, and briefly discuss the physics prospects opening up with the data from these experiments.
