Texas A&M Physicist Ralf Rapp Authors Most-Cited Paper in Nuclear Physics Journal’s Recent History

Nov 30, 2021
“Without a doubt, Dr. Rapp is a world-renowned leader in the field of theoretical analysis of quark gluon plasma, the subject matter of this celebrated paper. His efforts are central to our understanding of this exotic state of matter that defined the first microseconds of the universe’s existence. His genius and extremely hard work propelled him to the very top of his field, and the distinction of being the first author of the most-cited paper in Nuclear Physics A is a testament to that."
Dr. Grigory V. Rogachev, Texas A&M physicist and department head
