The quark-gluon plasma laboratory studies ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions to create and characterize the new state of nuclear matter in which the quarks and gluons are deconfined, the quark-gluon plasma (QGP). A few micro-seconds after the Big Bang, the Universe was in such a QGP state. The LQGP participated in the PHENIX experiment at RHIC, BNL and is currently involved in the ALICE experiment at the LHC, CERN. The LQGP is building its future by its strong involvement in the upgrade programs of ALICE, MFT and MUON electronics, and sPHENIX.
