Welcome to RHIC News

We hope that this web publication will in some small measure reflect the excitement of the RHIC and AGS program at Brookhaven, as explained by some of the people who are doing the experiments, analyzing the data, and writing the papers.

How Does STAR Identify Charged Hadrons at High Transverse Momentum?
By Yichun Xu and Zhangbu Xu
Study of identifying charged hadrons is important for almost every aspect of physics in the field of relativistic heavy ion collisions[1]. In the last few years the STAR collaboration has developed methods to identify charged hadrons at high transverse momentum (pT) at middle rapidity. Recently the identification of charged pions and protons in STAR has been pushed to pT~=15 GeV/c. More...

Waiting for the W
By M. J. Tannenbaum
When I was a sophomore at Columbia College, my physics teacher (Polykarp Kusch) had just won the Nobel Prize. In my senior year, another teacher (T.D.Lee) had also just won the Nobel Prize. I thought this was normal.  More...
