RHIC & AGS Annual Users' Meeting

Workshop 4


Electromagnetic Probes: Photons and Dileptons

Back | Homepage

Date: Tuesday, May 27,2008
Organizers: Alberica Toia and Zhangbu Xu
Time: Morning Session
Location: Biology Seminar Room, - Bldg. 463
Since after being produced, they do no longer interact strongly with the medium they should probe, electromagnetic probes offer a large variety of experimental measurements, which include the measurement of direct thermal photons, dilepton measurements which provide interesting information about the resonances and the continuum: mass shift, width change, suppression, centrality dependency, gamma-gamma HBT, and gamma-jet correlations. The workshop aims to review the recent results achieved at RHIC, also in the context of measurements at lower sqrt(s), to comprehensively understand direct radiation from the QCD matter and anticipate possible future measurement of electromagnetic radiation.

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.
