"488th Brookhaven Lecture: 'Magic Lenses for RHIC: Compensating beam-beam interaction'"
Presented by Yun Luo, Collider-Accelerator Department at Brookhaven Lab
Wednesday, July 17, 2013, 4 pm
Berkner Hall Auditorium
Hosted by: Allen Orville
During this lecture, Luo will start by discussing some collider fundamentals and the challenges of increasing rates of particle collisions, or luminosity, at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven Lab. He will then introduce the electron lens system he helped develop at the Lab as he explains how this tool could help double the luminosity at RHIC and prepare the machine for physicists' future endeavors.
