One of the central goals of today’s nuclear physics is the search for exotic states of strongly interacting matter (e. g. the formation of a quark-gluon plasma). High energetic collisions between two nuclei are the only tool to probe nuclear and quark matter far beyond the nuclear ground state, at densities several times the densities found in the interior of nuclei and at temperatures which were only realized in the universe shortly after the big bang (around 200 MeV). At the high energy laboratories CERN and BNL proton, oxygen and sulphur (CERN-SPS), respectively silicon (BNL-AGS) ions have been accelerated and collided with different targets. The maximum beam energies have been 200 AGeV (at CERN) and 14.5 AGeV (at BNL). Now experiments with truly heavy ion projectiles have just started (with a gold beam at BNL) or are under way (Pb(160 AGeV)+Pb at CERN).
