transparency range

transparency range

[tranz′par·ən·sē ‚rānj]
(nuclear physics)
A postulated energy range for extremely high-energy heavy-ion collisions in which the projectile passes through the target and emerges with its temperature and density raised to the point at which a quark-gluon plasma forms.

There are two energy ranges, says Arthur Proskanzer of LBL, where quark-gluon plasmas are possible: the stopping range and the transparency range.
In the transparency range the projectile goes through the target and comes out somewhat slowed but still identifiable.
