MJT-Seminar-ETHZ-Oct 2004M. J. Tannenbaum 2/78 High Energy Nucleus-Collisions provide the means of creating Nuclear Matter in conditions of Extreme Temperature and Density At large energy or baryon density, a phase transition is expected from a state of nucleons containing confined quarks and gluons to a state of “deconfined” (from their individual nucleons) quarks and gluons covering a volume that is many units of the confinement length scale.
MJT-Seminar-ETHZ-Oct 2004M. J. Tannenbaum 3/78 The Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) The QCD confinement scale---when the string breaks---is order: 1/ QCD ~1/m =1.4 fm With increasing temperature, T, in analogy to increasing Q 2, s (T) becomes smaller, reducing the binding energy, and the string tension (T) becomes smaller, increasing the confinement radius, effectively screening the potential V= -4 s + r -4 s e - (T) 3 r For r 1/ the quark is free of the potential, effectively deconfined
MJT-Seminar-ETHZ-Oct 2004M. J. Tannenbaum 4/78 The Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) The state should be in chemical (particle type) and thermal equilibrium ~T The major problem is to relate the thermodynamic properties, Temperature, energy density, entropy of the QGP or hot nuclear matter to properties that can be measured in the lab.
MJT-Seminar-ETHZ-Oct 2004M. J. Tannenbaum 5/78 The gold-plated signature for the QGP J/ Suppression QGP In 1986, T. Matsui & H. Satz PL B178, 416 (1987) said that due to the Debye screening of the color potential in a QGP, charmonium production would be suppressed since the cc-bar couldn’t bind. This is CERN’s claim to fame: but the situation is complicated because J/ are suppressed in p+A collisions. [NA50 collaboration, M.C. Abreu, et al., PLB 477, 28 (2000)]
MJT-Seminar-ETHZ-Oct 2004M. J. Tannenbaum 9/78 What is PHENIX? PHENIX = Pioneering High Energy Nuclear Interaction eXperiment A large, multi-purpose nuclear physics experiment at the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider (RHIC): 1 A 197. For Au+Au: 19 s NN 200 GeV L max = 2 x cm -2 s -1 two independent rings ---> p+Au, d+Au, etc.
MJT-Seminar-ETHZ-Oct 2004M. J. Tannenbaum 10/78 How to discover the QGP The Classical road to success in RHI Physics: J/ Suppression Major background for e detection is photons and conversions from 0. but more importantly Need an electron trigger for full J/ detection EMCal plus electron ID at trigger level. High p T 0 and direct production and two-particle correlations are the way to measure hard- scattering in RHI collisions where jets can not be detected directly---> segmentation of EMCal must be sufficient to distinguish 0 and direct up to 25 GeV/c (also vital for spin) Charm measurement via single e (Discovered by CCRS experiment at CERN ISR)
MJT-Seminar-ETHZ-Oct 2004M. J. Tannenbaum 11/78 “Mike, is there a `real collider detector’ at RHIC?---J. Steinberger ” PHENIX is picturesque because it is not your father’s solenoid collider detector Special purpose detector designed and built to measure rare processes involving leptons and photons at the highest luminosities.

MJT-Seminar-ETHZ-Oct 2004M. J. Tannenbaum 44/78 d+Au: Control Experiment to prove the Au+Au discovery The “Color Glass Condensate” model predicts the suppression in both Au+Au and d+Au (due to the initial state effect). The d+Au experiment tells us that the observed hadron suppression at high p T central Au+A is a final state effect. This diagram also explains why we can’t measure jets directly in Au+Au central collisions: all nucleons participate so charged multiplicity is ~200 times larger than a p-p collision 300 GeV in standard jet cone.

MJT-Seminar-ETHZ-Oct 2004M. J. Tannenbaum 81/78 So, do jet analysis in Au+Au Trigger: hadron with p T > 2.5 GeV/c Identify as baryon or meson Biased, low energy, high z jets! Plot of associated partners Count associated lower p T particles for each trigger “conditional yield” Near side yield: number of jet associated particles from same jet in specified p T bin Away side yield: jet fragments from opposing jet trigger 2 particle correlations near side < 90° Partner from same jet away side > 90° opposing jet

Tannenbaum 82/78 Subtract the underlying event CARTOON flow flow+jet dN N trig d includes ALL triggers (even those with no associated particles in the event) jet Underlying event is big! Collective flow causes another correlation in them: B(1+2v 2 (p T trig )v 2 (p T assoc )cos(2 )) associated particles with non-flow angular correlations -> jets! Treat as 2 Gaussians 1 combinatorial background large in Au+Au!

MJT-Seminar-ETHZ-Oct 2004M. J. Tannenbaum 84/78 jet partner equally likely for trigger baryons & mesons Same side: slight decrease with centrality. Larger partner probability than pp, dAu Away side: partner rate as in p+p confirms jet source of baryons! “disappearance” of away- side jet for both baryons and mesons intermediate p T baryons ARE from jets

In addition, it could separate photon production processes. Passes the isolation cut Only the fraction is survived Yes, it’s not so simple. (infrared divergences, underlying parton picture) In this analysis, we compare with/without the isolation cut without efficiency correction. With the subtraction method
