Phase vs matter
I've disambiguated 'phase of matter' and 'state of matter', but not sure what to do with templates. I'll let someone else do that who knows what they're doing. -- Olof
moved B-E condensate to the start of the list to match the ascending order of particulate kinetic energy states in the other 4 states of matter.
"deionization" or "recombination" ?
Who put "deionization" in there (nd also in the diagram). The link to Gas-filled tube is a bit strange, too. I am a plasma physicist and would have called it "recombination", as in Plasma recombination and Recombination (cosmology). Art Carlson (talk) 09:31, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
- I have no definitive source, and I am not in this science. I found this: the page Deionization does not give a connection with this topic, while we do have Plasma recombination (a stub). I have changed the link in the template, and also changed the text in the diagram used. (I have also cleaned up the layout of the graph). If this discussion would end up different (to accept deinoization), we can always change. -DePiep (talk) 15:43, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
Supercritical Fluid - A high energy phase?
The other two phases given as "high energy" are QCD matter and Quark-gluon plasma, both of which occur at temperatures exceeding 10^12 Kelvins, while the critical temperature of most substances occur between 10^1 to 10^4 Kelvins. In my opinion, it should be moved to the same box as the classical phases of matter, but I don't want to make a change in such a visible template until we get a second opinion. --Alx xlA (talk) 06:57, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
