Abstract

We discuss the production of strange quark clusters in high energy heavy ion reactions in which a Quark-Gluon-Plasma (QGP) intermediate state is excited. A microscopic fission-chain model (PHASER) has been constructed for the description of QGP rehadronization. Color fluctuations,Q¯Q pair production and energy fragmentation have been taken into account. We determined the spin-flavor degeneracy factors and the formation factors for multibaryon quark clusters. Baryon, antibaryon and meson yields have been estimated, as well as those of light multi-strange quark clusters.
