The color propagation and hadron production from hard interactions in nuclei have been extensively studied over the last few decades. These studies are related to one of the basic phenomenon of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) referred to as hadronization or fragmentation. In this process, an energetic struck quark transforms to color-neutral hadrons making it an effective probe of the confinement...

Color transparency (CT) is a fundamental phenomenon of QCD postulating that at high momentum transfer, one can preferentially measure hadrons that fluctuate to a small color neutral transverse size in the nucleus, and final state interactions within the nuclear medium are suppressed. CT is observed experimentally as a rise in the measured nuclear transparency as a function of the momentum...

In a rapidly evolving quark-gluon plasma, local rest frame momentum distributions can largely deviate from isotropic equilibrium statistics. In recent years, progress in the realization of an anisotropic hydrodynamic description beyond the linear viscous corrections has set the stage for further investigating the collective properties and the role of plasma instabilities at earlier stages of...

The study of anisotropic flow provides strong constraints to the evolution of the medium produced in heavy ion collisions and its event-by-event geometry fluctuations. The strength and predominance of these observables have long been related to collective behavior in the formed medium. Recent results in small systems both at RHIC and LHC provide strong arguments for the formation of such...

In hadron physics arrays of silicon drift detectors (SDDs) were extremely successful used for spectroscopy of kaonic atoms. Presently new experiments on X-ray spectroscopy at DAFNE/LNF-INFN in Italy and J-PARC in Japan for the first strong interaction studies of kaonic deuterium are in preparation. The development of SDD X-ray detectors is also crucial for experiments in foundation of quantum...
