Prachi Chitnis, a Stony Brook University student mentored by Kevin Brown, a scientist at Brookhaven Lab’s Collider-Accelerator Department, has been awarded the European Physical Society Award recognizing her rigorous research analyzing the reliability and vulnerabilities of collider detector systems that are important to experimental runs at the Lab’s Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider.
Brookhaven physicist Paul Sorensen describes discoveries made at the
Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider where conditions similar to what the
universe may have looked like in the first microseconds after its birth are
RHIC is in its prime, poised to address a host of compelling science questions that remain or have been raised by the important discoveries to date, the facility performance continues to improve dramatically and the user base remains energized. Read more...
