Pseudogap state in superconductors

Phase diagram of superconducting NbN films as a function of disorder. At high disorder, Cooper pairs do not disappear at the superconducting transition, Tc, but continue to exist up to a much higher temperature, T*, called the pseudogap temperature.

Defrosting matter

In the conjectured phase diagram of QCD the hadronic state exists at low temperature and density and changes into the quark gluon plasma at the cross over temperature of 175 MeV, or about 2,000,000,000,000 Celsius. A critical point is also predicted.
