RHIC & AGS Annual Users' Meeting

Workshop 3


RHIC Future:  New Physics Through Upgrades

Back | Homepage

Date: Tuesday, May 27, 2008
Organizers: Mickey Chiu and Xin Dong
Time: Afternoon Session
Location: Large Conference Room, Bldg. 490 - Medical
The primary goal of this workshop is to promote discussion of the upgrade possibilities for both the collider and experiments at RHIC. These upgrades are the fundamentally necessary for the next era of measurements at RHIC and even beyond RHIC, such as eRHIC. These upgrades would allow RHIC to reach far higher luminosities than currently. Coupled with new detectors, the upgrades would greatly expand the physics reach at RHIC, and maintain the RHIC complex's standing as the premiere laboratory to study the properties of the strongly coupled QGP, the gluon and sea quark contributions to proton spin structure, and potentially other new physics.

DOE, Office of Science One of ten national laboratories overseen and primarily funded by the Office of Science of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Brookhaven National Laboratory conducts research in the physical, biomedical, and environmental sciences, as well as in energy technologies and national security. Brookhaven Lab also builds and operates major scientific facilities available to university, industry and government researchers. Brookhaven is operated and managed for DOE's Office of Science by Brookhaven Science Associates, a limited-liability company founded by the Research Foundation for the State University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University, the largest academic user of Laboratory facilities, and Battelle, a nonprofit, applied science and technology organization.
