New design of silicon stripixel sensor has been developed at BNL for PHENIX upgrade. The sensor is a single-sided, DC-coupled, two-dimensional position sensitive device with good position resolution. This design is simpler for sensor fabrication and signal processing than the conventional double-sided strip sensor. HPK has produced pre-production stripixel sensors with thickness of 625 μm. The quality assurance tests show that the very low leakage current 0.12 nA per strip allows the use of the SVX4 chip. A long term stability test shows that the leakage current is stable over a long period of time. The study of the ...


Deuteron And Antideuteron Production In Au+Au Collisions At Root S(Nn)=200 Gev, S. S. Adler, Sergey Belikov, S. Bhagavatula, Paul Constantin, Nathan C. Grau, John C. Hill, John G.

The production of deuterons and antideuterons in the transverse momentum range 1.1 < p(T)< 4.3 GeV/c at midrapidity in Au+Au collisions at root s(NN) = 200 GeV has been studied by the PHENIX experiment at RHIC. A coalescence analysis, comparing the deuteron and antideuteron spectra with that of proton and antiproton, has been performed. The coalescence probability is equal for both deuterons and antideuterons and it increases as a function of p(T), which is consistent with an expanding collision zone. Comparing (anti)proton yields, (p) over bar /p = 0.73 +/- 0.01, with (anti)deuteron ...

We present a measurement of the double longitudinal spin asymmetry in inclusive pi(0) production in polarized proton-proton collisions at roots=200 GeV. The data were taken at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider with average beam polarizations of 0.27. The measurements are the first in a program to study the longitudinal spin structure of the proton, using strongly interacting probes, at collider energies. The asymmetry is presented for transverse momenta 1-5 GeV/c at midrapidity, where next-to-leading-order perturbative quantum chromodynamic (NLO pQCD) calculations well describe the unpolarized cross section. The observed asymmetry is small and is compared to a ...


Centrality Dependence Of Pi(+/-), K-+/-, P, And (P)Over-Bar Production From Root(Nn)-N-S = 130 Gev Au+Au Collisions At Rhic, K. Adcox, Sergey Belikov, John C. Hill, John G. Lajoie, Alexandre Lebedev, Craig Ogilvie, Athanasios Petridis, Marzia Rosati, F. K. Wohn, et al. 2017 Vanderbilt University

Centrality Dependence Of Pi(+/-), K-+/-, P, And (P)Over-Bar Production From Root(Nn)-N-S = 130 Gev Au+Au Collisions At Rhic, K. Adcox, Sergey Belikov, John C. Hill, John G. Lajoie, Alexandre Lebedev, Craig Ogilvie, Athanasios Petridis, Marzia Rosati, F. K. Wohn, Et Al.

Craig Ogilvie

Identified pi(+/-), K+/-, p, and (p) over bar transverse momentum spectra at midrapidity in root s(NN) = 130 GeV Au + Au collisions were measured by the PHENIX experiment at RHIC as a function of collision centrality. Average transverse momenta increase with the number of participating nucleons in a similar way for all particle species. Within errors, all midrapidity particle yields per participant are found to be increasing with the number of participating nucleons. There is an indication that K+/-, p, and (p) over bar yields per participant increase faster than the pi(+/-) yields. In central collisions at high transverse momenta ...


Centrality Dependence Of Pi(0) And Eta Production At Large Transverse Momentum In Root S(Nn) = 200 Gev D+Au Collisions, S. S. Adler, Sergey Belikov, Paul Constantin, Nathan C. Grau, John C.

The dependence of transverse momentum spectra of neutral pions and eta mesons with p(T) < 16 GeV/c and p(T) < 12 GeV/c, respectively, on the centrality of the collision has been measured at midrapidity by the PHENIX experiment at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) in d + Au collisions at root s(NN) = 200 GeV. The measured yields are compared to those in p + p collisions at the same root s(NN) scaled by the number of underlying nucleon-nucleon collisions in d + Au. At all centralities, the yield ratios show no suppression, in contrast to the strong suppression seen for central An + Au collisions at RHIC. Only a weak p(T) and centrality dependence can be observed.


Correlated Production Of P And P¯ Source In Au + Au Collisions At √Snn=200 Gev, Andrew Adare, Sergey Belikov, Paul Constantin, Nathan C. Grau, John C. Hill, John G. Lajoie, Alexandre Lebedev, Craig Ogilvie, H. Pei, Jan Rak, Marzia Rosati, Carla Vale, et al. 2017 University of Colorado, Boulder

Correlated Production Of P And P¯ Source In Au + Au Collisions At √Snn=200 Gev, Andrew Adare, Sergey Belikov, Paul Constantin, Nathan C. Grau, John C. Hill, John G. Lajoie, Alexandre Lebedev, Craig Ogilvie, H. Pei, Jan Rak, Marzia Rosati, Carla Vale, Et Al.

Craig Ogilvie

Correlations between p and p¯ at transverse momenta typical of enhanced baryon production in Au + Au collisions are reported. The PHENIX experiment has measured same and opposite sign baryon pairs in Au + Au collisions at √sNN=200 GeV. Correlated production of p and p¯ with the trigger particle from the range 2.5 < pT < 4.0 GeV/c and the associated particle with 1.8 < pT < 2.5 GeV/c is observed to be nearly independent of the centrality of the collisions. Same sign pairs show no correlation at any centrality. The conditional yield of mesons triggered by baryons (and anti-baryons) and mesons in the same pT range rises with increasing centrality, except for the most central collisions, where baryons show a significantly smaller number of associated mesons. These data are consistent with a picture in which hard scattered partons produce correlated p and p¯ in the pT region of ...


Common Suppression Pattern Of Eta And Pi(0) Mesons At High Transverse Momentum In Au Plus Au Collisions At Root Snn=200 Gev, S. S. Adler, Sergey Belikov, S. Bhagavatula, Paul Constantin, Nathan C.

Inclusive transverse momentum spectra of eta mesons have been measured within p(T)=2-10 GeV/c at midrapidity by the PHENIX experiment in Au+Au collisions at root s(NN) = 200 GeV. In central Au+Au the eta yields are significantly suppressed compared to peripheral Au+Au, d+Au, and p+p yields scaled by the corresponding number of nucleon-nucleon collisions. The magnitude, centrality, and p(T) dependence of the suppression is common, within errors, for eta and pi(0). The ratio of eta to pi(0) spectra at high p(T) amounts to 0.40 < R-eta/pi(0)< 0 ...


Cross Section And Parity-Violating Spin Asymmetries Of W-+/- Boson Production In Polarized P Plus P Collisions At Root S=500 Gev, Andrew Adare, Alan Dion, John C. Hill, Todd Kempel, John G.

Cross Section And Parity-Violating Spin Asymmetries Of W-+/- Boson Production In Polarized P Plus P Collisions At Root S=500 Gev, Andrew Adare, Alan Dion, John C. Hill, Todd Kempel, John G. Lajoie, Alexandre Lebedev, Craig Ogilvie, H. Pei, Marzia Rosati, C. L. Silva, Feng Wei, Et Al.

Craig Ogilvie

Large parity-violating longitudinal single-spin asymmetries A(L)(e+) = 0.86(-0.14)(+0.30) and Ae(L)(e-) = 0.88(-0.71)(+0.12) are observed for inclusive high transverse momentum electrons and positrons in polarized p + p collisions at a center-of-mass energy of root s = 500 GeV with the PHENIX detector at RHIC. These e(+/-) come mainly from the decay of W-+/- and Z(0) bosons, and their asymmetries directly demonstrate parity violation in the couplings of the W-+/- to the light quarks. The observed electron and positron yields were used to estimate W-+/- boson production cross sections for ...


Cross Section And Double Helicity Asymmetry For Eta Mesons And Their Comparison To Pi(0) Production In P Plus P Collisions At Root S=200 Gev, Andrew Adare, Nathan C. Grau, John C.

Measurements of double-helicity asymmetries in inclusive hadron production in polarized p + p collisions are sensitive to helicity-dependent parton distribution functions, in particular, to the gluon helicity distribution, Delta g. This study focuses on the extraction of the double-helicity asymmetry in eta production ((p) over right arrow + (p) over right arrow -> eta + X), the eta cross section, and the eta/pi(0) cross section ratio. The cross section and ratio measurements provide essential input for the extraction of fragmentation functions that are needed to access the helicity-dependent parton distribution functions.

Craig Ogilvie

Bose-Einstein correlations of charged kaons are used to probe Au+Au collisions at s(NN)=200 GeV and are compared to charged pion probes, which have a larger hadronic scattering cross section. Three-dimensional Gaussian source radii are extracted, along with a one-dimensional kaon emission source function. The centrality dependences of the three Gaussian radii are well described by a single linear function of N-part(1/3) with a zero intercept. Imaging analysis shows a deviation from a Gaussian tail at r greater than or similar to 10 fm, although the bulk emission at lower radius is well described by a ...


Dense-Medium Modifications To Jet-Induced Hadron Pair Distributions In Au+Au Collisions At Root(Nn)-N-S=200 Gev, S. S. Adler, Sergey Belikov, S. Bhagavatula, Paul Constantin, Nathan C. Grau, John C.

Craig Ogilvie

Azimuthal correlations of jet-induced high-p(T) charged hadron pairs are studied at midrapidity in Au+Au collisions at root s(NN)=200 GeV. The distribution of jet-associated partner hadrons (1.0 < p(T)< 2.5 GeV/c) per trigger hadron (2.5 < p(T)< 4.0 GeV/c) is found to vary with collision centrality, in both shape and yield, indicating a significant effect of the nuclear collision medium on the jet fragmentation process.


Centrality Dependence Of The High (Pt) Charged Hadron Suppression In Au+Au Collisions At Root S(Nn)=130 Gev, K. Adcox, Sergey Belikov, John C. Hill, John G. Lajoie, Alexandre Lebedev, Craig Ogilvie, Athanasios Petridis, Marzia Rosati, F. K. Wohn, et al. 2017 Vanderbilt University

Centrality Dependence Of The High (Pt) Charged Hadron Suppression In Au+Au Collisions At Root S(Nn)=130 Gev, K. Adcox, Sergey Belikov, John C. Hill, John G. Lajoie, Alexandre Lebedev, Craig Ogilvie, Athanasios Petridis, Marzia Rosati, F. K. Wohn, Et Al.

Craig Ogilvie

PHENIX has measured the centrality dependence of charged hadron p(T) spectra from Au + Au collisions at root(s)NN = 130 GeV The truncated mean p(T) decreases with centrality for p(T) > 2 GeV/c, indicating an apparent reduction of the contribution from hard scattering to high p(T) hadron production. For central collisions the yield at high p(T) is shown to be suppressed compared to binary nucleon-nucleon collision scaling of p + p, data. This suppression is monotonically increasing with centrality, but most of the change occurs below 30% centrality, i.e., for collisions with less than similar ...

Bose-Einstein Correlations Of Charged Pion Pairs In Au+Au Collisions At Root(Nn)-N-S = 200 Gev, S. S. Adler, Sergey Belikov, S. Bhagavatula, Paul Constantin, Nathan C. Grau, John C. Hill, John G. Lajoie, Alexandre Lebedev, Craig Ogilvie, Jan Rak, Marzia Rosati, F. K. Wohn, Et Al.

Craig Ogilvie

Bose-Einstein correlations of identically charged pion pairs were measured by the PHENIX experiment at midrapidity in Au+Au collisions at roots(NN)=200 GeV. The Bertsch-Pratt radius parameters were determined as a function of the transverse momentum of the pair and as a function of the centrality of the collision. Using the standard core-halo partial Coulomb fits, and a new parametrization which constrains the Coulomb fraction as determined from the unlike-sign pion correlation, the ratio R-out/R-side is within 0.8-1.1 for 0.25 < < k(T) > < 1.2 GeV/c. The centrality dependence of all radii is well described by a linear scaling in N-part(1/3), and R-out/R-side for < k(T) > similar to 0.45 GeV/c is approximately constant at unity as a function of ...

Deuteron-gold (d+Au) collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider provide ideal platforms for testing QCD theories in dense nuclear matter at high energy. In particular, models suggesting strong saturation effects for partons carrying small nucleon momentum fraction (x) predict modifications to jet production at forward rapidity (deuteron-going direction) in d+Au collisions. We report on two-particle azimuthal angle correlations between charged hadrons at forward/backward (deuteron/gold going direction) rapidity and charged hadrons at midrapidity in d+Au and p+p collisions at root s(NN)=200 GeV. Jet structures observed in the correlations are quantified in terms of ...

Hill, Todd Kempel, John G. Lajoie, Alexandre Lebedev, Craig Ogilvie, H. Pei, Marzia Rosati, Alexey Yu. Semenov, Carla Vale, Feng Wei, Et Al.

Craig Ogilvie

We have measured the azimuthal anisotropy of pi(0) production for 1 < p(T) < 18 GeV/c for Au + Au collisions at root s(NN) = 200 GeV. The observed anisotropy shows a gradual decrease for 3 less than or similar to p(T) less than or similar to 7-10 GeV/c, but remains positive beyond 10 GeV/c. The magnitude of this anisotropy is underpredicted, up to at least similar to 10 GeV/c, by current perturbative QCD (PQCD) energy-loss model calculations. An estimate of the increase in anisotropy expected from initial-geometry modification due to gluon saturation effects and fluctuations ...

Craig Ogilvie

The first measurement of direct photons in Au+Au collisions at root s(NN)=200 GeV is presented. The direct photon signal is extracted as a function of the Au+Au collision centrality and compared to next-to-leading order perturbative quantum chromodynamics calculations. The direct photon yield is shown to scale with the number of nucleon-nucleon collisions for all centralities.

Transverse momentum spectra of charged hadrons with p(T)<8 GeV/c and neutral pions with p(T)<10 GeV/c have been measured at midrapidity by the PHENIX experiment at BNL RHIC in d+Au collisions at roots(NN)=200 GeV. The measured yields are compared to those in p+p collisions at the same roots(NN) scaled up by the number of underlying nucleon-nucleon collisions in d+Au. The yield ratio does not show the suppression observed in central Au+Au collisions at RHIC. Instead, there is a small enhancement in the yield of high momentum particles.


Centrality Dependence Of Charged Particle Multiplicity In Au-Au Collisions At Root(S)Nn=130 Gev, K. Adcox, Sergey Belikov, John C. Hill, John G. Lajoie, Alexandre Lebedev, Craig Ogilvie, Athanasios Petridis, Marzia Rosati, F. K. Wohn, et. al 2017 Vanderbilt University

Craig Ogilvie

We present results for the charged-particle multiplicity distribution at midrapidity in Au-Au collisions at roots(NN) = 130 GeV measured with the PHENIX detector at RHIC. For the 5% most central collisions we find dN(ch)/d eta (|eta =0) = 622 +/- 1(stat) +/- 41(syst). The results, analyzed as a function of centrality show a steady rise of the particle density per participating nucleon with centrality.

Bhagavatula, Paul Constantin, Nathan C. Grau, John C. Hill, John G. Lajoie, Alexandre Lebedev, Craig Ogilvie, Jan Rak, Marzia Rosati, F. K. Wohn, Et Al.

Craig Ogilvie

The PHENIX experiment has measured midrapidity transverse momentum spectra (0.4 < p(T)<4.0 GeV/c) of single electrons as a function of centrality in Au+Au collisions at roots(NN) = 200 GeV. Contributions from photon conversions and Dalitz decays of light neutral mesons are measured by introducing a thin (1.7% X-0) converter into the PHENIX acceptance and are statistically removed. The subtracted nonphotonic electron spectra are primarily due to the semileptonic decays of hadrons containing heavy quarks, mainly charm at lower p(T). For all centralities, the charm production cross section is found to scale with the nuclear overlap function, T-AA. For minimum-bias collisions the charm cross section per binary collision is N-c (c) over bar/T-AA=622+/-57(stat)+/-160(syst) mu b.
