Abstract [en]

Strange Quark Matter is a proposed state of hadronic matter consisting of up, down and strange quarks. If this state is stable as proposed by various phenomenological models, there will most likely be an experimentally accessible component of strange quark matter particles (strangelets) in the cosmic ray flux. In GLAST the prime signature would be a A particle produced in hadronic interaction of the strangelet in the tracker, decaying into a proton and pion with relatively large opening angle, In this contribution we discuss the possibility for the GLAST-LAT to measure these events and separate them from background.
