What is the process to acheive hadronization?

  1. Aug 16, 2011 #1
    I am interested to know how to acheive hadronization (the specific details). Is anyone aware of a site where I could find this information (presented in a readable format)?

    I am also interested to know what types of hadron clusters result from this event.

    Thank you for any help you might be able to provide :)

    You need to smack some particles together with quite a significant amount of energy. I think the first artificial hadrons created must have been pions. Wikipedia tells me these were first produced at the University of California, Berkeley, in their cyclotron, in 1948. You might want to look up the details of these early experiments.

    You mean jets? Take a look at the paper "QCD and Jets", arXiv:hep-ph/0412013v1
