2 Outline d+Au collision – Nuclear Modification Factor – Competing models – CGC, Shadowing, Energy Loss, Absorption Experiment – RHIC – RHIC luminosity, PHENIX experiment – MPC ( Muon Piston Calorimeter in PHENIX ) Hadron R dA, R CP results at different rapidity ranges – Hadron and decay muon – Single electron and single muon – J/ψ, Υ – Light vector meson ( ϕ, ρ, ω) Di-hadron azimuthal angle correlation results – CY, I dA, J dA – Mid-forward rapidity correlation – Forward-forward rapidity correlation Summary 1/4/12 2

3 d+A Collision 1/4/12 3 Deutron Parton x _d Au Parton x_ Au Deutron Parton x _d Au Parton x _Au Forward rapidity (Deutron going direction) x_ d > x_ Au (Low x in Au) Backward rapidity (Au going direction) x_ Au > x_ d RHIC experiments have made an amazing array of measurements in d+Au to understand cold nuclear matter Initial state effects vital to interpreting results from heavy ion collisions Are effects at forward rapidity due to gluon saturation effects (have we reached a regime of QCD where non-linear effects are important)?

4 Why hadron production suppressed at forward rapidity ! 0 meson PHENIX | | < 0.35 R dA R dA ~ 1 at mid rapidity PRL 98 (2007), STAR, BRAHMS Forward STAR, BRAHMS Forward PRL 97 (2006), Nuclear Modification factor Cold Nuclear Matter(CNM) effect 1/4/12 4 Compelling theory models to explain this suppression at forward rapidity. Gluon saturation(or CGC) Nuclear shadowing/ E_loss Parton recombination Multi Parton Interaction (MPI) Momentum imbalance (recent paper) etc. STAR BRAHMS results show RdA < 1

5 As y, energy grows Color Glass Condensate & Effect Kharzeev, Kovchegov, and Tuchin, hep-ph/ Phase diagram of QCD evolution R pA suppressed at all values of p T as rapidity / energy grows. 1/4/12 Gluon density saturates for large denisites at small x Mechanism for gluon saturation Y is related to rapidity of produced hadron

6 Nuclear Shadowing / Energy Loss / Absorption 6 Energy loss of incident gluon shifts effective x F and produces nuclear suppression which increases with x F R(A/p) R=1 xFxF p A Absorption (or dissociation) of into two D mesons by nucleus or co-movers 1/4/12 Shadowing can arise from coherence - Small-x wavefunction spans large longitudinal distances λ ~ 1/p parton ~ 1/x i.e. the probe interacts with multiple target nucleons coherently
