R. 5.0%, c = 59.9 m) and more … Primary Challenges –Neutral particle decay –Proper lifetime, c , 123 m –Find a common vertex away from the primary vertex –Identify daughters, measure p T, and reconstruct the invariant mass

6 Jim Thomas – The Berkeley Lab The HFT – Technology
7 Jim Thomas – The Berkeley Lab The MTD - Design Concept A detector with long-MRPCs covers the whole iron bars and leave the gaps in- between uncovered. Acceptance: 45% at | |<0.5 117 modules, 1404 readout strips, 2808 readout channels Long-MRPC detector technology, HPTDC electronics (same as STAR-TOF)
8 Jim Thomas – The Berkeley Lab A large area of muon telescope detector (MTD) at mid-rapidity, allows for the detection of di-muon pairs from QGP thermal radiation, quarkonia, light vector mesons, possible correlations of quarks and gluons as resonances in QGP, and Drell-Yan production single muons from the semi- leptonic decays of heavy flavor hadrons advantages over electrons: no conversion, much less Dalitz decay contribution, less affected by radiative losses in the detector materials, trigger capability in Au+Au trigger capability for low to high p T J/ in central Au+Au collsions - excellent mass resolution, - separate different upsilon states - e- correlation to distinguish heavy flavor production from initial lepton pair production The MTD - Physics Motivation

12 Jim Thomas – The Berkeley Lab The MTD - Summary Charm contribution to di-lepton spectrum measurement is essential to obtain the thermal radiation from QGP and understand in-medium modifications of vector mesons at RHIC. MTD will advance our knowledge of Quark Gluon Plasma: - trigger capability for low to high p T J/ in central Au+Au collsions - excellent mass resolution, separate different upsilon states - e-muon correlation to distinguish heavy flavor production from initial lepton pair production - rare decay and exotics … - different background contribution provides complementary measurements for dileptons The prototype of MTD works at STAR from Run 7 to Run 10. L. Ruan et al., Journal of Physics G: Nucl. Part. Phys. 36 (2009) 095001; 0904.3774; Y. Sun et al., NIMA 593 (2008) 430. The larger Run 11 modules with slightly wider readout strips show a comparable performance as the modules in Runs 7-10, based on cosmic ray tests at USTC and Tsinghua.
13 Jim Thomas – The Berkeley Lab The HLT SL3 GL3 BEMC TOF GL3 HFT MTD Total 24 SL3 machines Sector tracking (SL3) in DAQ machines (24 in total, one per TPC sector) Information from subsystems (SL3 and others) are sent to Global L3 machines (GL3) where an event is assembled and a trigger decision is made.
14 Jim Thomas – The Berkeley Lab Over the next five years RHIC is expected to increase its delivered luminosity to 8x10 27 cm -1 s -1 for AuAu collisions at 200 GeV and 6x10 31 cm -1 s -1 (1.5x10 32 cm -2 s -1 ) for pp collisions at 200 (500) GeV. To cope with the high collision rate, STAR has upgraded the DAQ system. The improved data taking capability, imposes a challenge for STAR –computing resource in terms of CPU time and tape storage –Data analysis: struggle with large data volume and suffer long analysis cycles By implementing an HLT it will be possible to reduce the amount of data written to tape by selecting desirable events while still maintaining a high sampling rate. The HLT will fully utilize the delivered luminosity for a wide range of triggers. With the HLT, all the upgraded components will be able to perform at their full potential and will be performing beyond STAR’s current trigger capabilities. The HLT - Motivation
15 Jim Thomas – The Berkeley Lab The HLT – Physics agenda Heavy flavor measurement, EM probes J/ψ production and flow for exploring the unexpectedly fast thermalization at RHIC. Access in-medium modification of vector mesons via di-lepton invariant mass spectra. Search for exotics strangelets, antimatter, hypernuclei etc. High pt probe energy loss, jets Interesting physics with the HLT, fast output with the HLT
