We study the equation of state strongly interacting quark matter within a Nambu-Jona-Lasinio-like model in which the chiral condensates and the color superconducting gaps are computed self-consistently as a function of the baryon density. A vector interaction term is added to the Lagrangian in order to render the quark matter equation of state stiffer. For the low density hadronic phase we use a relativistic mean field model. The phase transition to quark matter is computed by a Maxwell construction. We show that stable color-flavor-locking (CFL) cores in hybrid stars are possible if the superconducting gap is sufficiently large. Moreover we find stable stellar configurations in which two phase transitions occur, a first transition from hadronic matter to 2SC quark matter and a second transition from 2SC quark matter to CFL quark matter.

Abstract

We study the equation of state strongly interacting quark matter within a Nambu-Jona-Lasinio-like model in which the chiral condensates and the color superconducting gaps are computed self-consistently as a function of the baryon density. A vector interaction term is added to the Lagrangian in order to render the quark matter equation of state stiffer. For the low density hadronic phase we use a relativistic mean field model. The phase transition to quark matter is computed by a Maxwell construction. We show that stable color-flavor-locking (CFL) cores in hybrid stars are possible if the superconducting gap is sufficiently large. Moreover we find stable stellar configurations in which two phase transitions occur, a first transition from hadronic matter to 2SC quark matter and a second transition from 2SC quark matter to CFL quark matter.
