Hypertriton
A hypertriton is a type of hypernucleus, formed of a proton, a neutron and any hyperon. The name comes from hyperon, which refers to baryons containing strange quarks, and triton, which refers to the
Strange B meson
The Bs meson is a meson composed of a bottom antiquark and a strange quark. Its antiparticle is the Bs meson, composed of a bottom quark and a strange antiquark.
Strange quark
The strange quark or s quark (from its symbol, s) is the third lightest of all quarks, a type of elementary particle. Strange quarks are found in subatomic particles called hadrons. Examples of hadron
Strangeness and quark–gluon plasma
In high-energy nuclear physics, strangeness production in relativistic heavy-ion collisions is a signature and diagnostic tool of quark–gluon plasma (QGP) formation and properties. Unlike up and down
Hypernucleus
A hypernucleus is similar to a conventional atomic nucleus, but contains at least one hyperon in addition to the normal protons and neutrons. Hyperons are a category of baryon particles that carry non
Strangeness
In particle physics, strangeness ("S") is a property of particles, expressed as a quantum number, for describing decay of particles in strong and electromagnetic interactions which occur in a short pe
Kaonic hydrogen
Kaonic hydrogen is an exotic atom consisting of a negatively charged kaon orbiting a proton. Such particles were first identified, through their X-ray spectrum, at the KEK proton synchrotron in Tsukub
Strange star
A strange star is a hypothetical astronomical object, a quark star made of strange quark matter. Strange stars might exist without regard to the Bodmer–Witten assumption of stability at near-zero temp
Phi meson
In particle physics, the phi meson or ϕ meson is a vector meson formed of a strange quark and a strange antiquark. It was the ϕ meson's unusual propensity to decay into K0 and K0 that led to the disco
Hyperon
In particle physics, a hyperon is any baryon containing one or more strange quarks, but no charm, bottom, or top quark. This form of matter may exist in a stable form within the core of some neutron s
Kaon
In particle physics, a kaon (/ˈkeɪ.ɒn/), also called a K meson and denoted K, is any of a group of four mesons distinguished by a quantum number called strangeness. In the quark model they are underst
Strangelet
A strangelet (pronounced /ˈstreɪndʒ.lɪt/) is a hypothetical particle consisting of a bound state of roughly equal numbers of up, down, and strange quarks. An equivalent description is that a strangele
Lambda baryon
The lambda baryons (Λ) are a family of subatomic hadron particles containing one up quark, one down quark, and a third quark from a higher flavour generation, in a combination where the quantum wave f
