"Search for the Chiral Magnetic Effect at RHIC : challenges and opportunities"

Presented by Prithwish Tribedy, BNL

Tuesday, April 18, 2017, 11:00 am — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

In this talk I will discuss about the ongoing and future efforts at RHIC towards the search for the Chiral Magnetic Effect (CME). I will focus on the recent STAR measurements of the charge separation across the reaction plane, a predicted signal of the Chiral Magnetic Effect.
Although charge separation has been observed, it has been argued that the measured separation in A+A collisions can be explained by elliptic flow related backgrounds. I will discuss on the challenges in disentangling such background contributions from the signals of CME. I will also discuss on implications of the recent measurements of charge separation in p+A collisions towards the search for CME.
