Nuclear Physics Seminar

"Reviewing the AGS Heavy Ion Program and Looking Forward to the Fixed-Target Program at STAR"

Presented by Prof. Daniel Cebra, UC Davis

Tuesday, April 30, 2019, 11:00 am — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

In the 1980's and 90's the AGS initiated a heavy-ion beam program with both silicon and gold beams. A suite of dedicated experiments established the systematics for production of light charged particles, strangeness, light nuclei, and anti-particles, as well as systematics for flow and femtoscopy. Those experiments established the design of the RHIC detectors and trained the personnel who would become leaders in the RHIC program. Recently, there has been renewed interest in the energy region covered by the AGS heavy-ion program. New facilities are being built Germany and Russia and proposed in Japan and China. And a conclusion of the first beam energy scan at RHIC was that it would be necessary to revisit the AGS energy range by installing a fixed-target within the STAR experiment. This talk will review key results from the AGS heavy-ion program, and those to results from the STAR fixed-target test runs, and outline the proposed physics program.
