Subject: Exploring cold and hot QCD matter with the next-generation PHENIX experiment
Speaker:    Jin Huang
Brookhaven National Laboratory
Date:Wednesday, February 25, 2015
Time: 11 a.m.
Place:CEBAF Center Auditorium
Abstract:For the next decade, the PHENIX collaboration has proposed a major upgrade, which consists of large acceptance electromagnetic and hadronic calorimetry built around the superconducting solenoid magnet that was recently shipped to BNL from the decommissioned BaBar experiment at SLAC. This upgrade, sPHENIX, enables an extremely rich jet and beauty quarkonia physics program addressing fundamental questions about the nature of the strongly coupled quark-gluon plasma. sPHENIX is also designed to serve as the foundation for a detector at a future electron-ion collider (EIC). New tracking, particle identification and calorimetry detectors will be added to enable a comprehensive EIC physics program using polarized e+p and e+A collisions. The physics goal, detector design and the performance studies will be discussed in this talk.
