    A bound state of 3 quarks and additional particles. These additional particles can be quarks.


  1. Exotic baryon

    Exotic baryons are hypothetical composite particles that are bound states of 4 or more quarks and additional elementary particles. This is to be contrasted with ordinary baryons, which are bound states of just 3 quarks. The additional particles may include quarks, antiquarks or gluons. One such exotic baryon is the pentaquark, which consists of four quarks and an antiquark. Another exotic baryon that consists only of quarks is the H dibaryon, which consists of two up quarks, two down quarks and two strange quarks. Unlike the pentaquark, this particle might be long lived or even stable. There have been unconfirmed claims of detections of pentaquarks and dibaryons. Several types of exotic baryons that require physics beyond the Standard Model have been conjectured in order to explain specific experimental anomalies. There is no independent experimental evidence for any of these particles. One example is supersymmetric R-baryons, which are bound states of 3 quarks and a gluino. The lightest R-baryon is denoted as and consists of an up quark, a down quark, a strange quark and a gluino. This particle is expected to be long lived or stable and has been invoked to explain ultra-high-energy cosmic rays. Stable exotic baryons are also candidates for strongly interacting dark matter.
