One of RHIC's two smaller detectors is
the Broad Range Hadron Magnetic Spectrometer, or "BRAHMS". This device
studies particles called
charged hadrons as they pass through detectors called
BRAHMS measures only a small number
of particles emerging from a specific set of angles during each
collision. The momentum, energy and other characteristics of the
particles are measured very precisely.
BRAHMS has 51 participants from 14
institutions in eight countries. BRAHMS is located at the 2
o'clock position on the RHIC ring.
