Abstract : We investigate the phase transition to a deconfined phase and the consequences in the formation of neutron stars. We use the recently proposed effective-field-theory-motivated relativistic mean-field theory for the hadrons and the MIT bag model and color-flavor locked (CFL) phase for the quark matter to get the appropriate equation of state. The properties of the stars are then calculated. The differences between unpaired and CFL quark matter are discussed.
