provide intriguing result

Signal for Chiral Symmtery Restoration

Signal for Hadron Suppression

  • PHENIX measured Low Mass Vector Meson, φandω production in both leptonic and hadronic channels in different collision system.
    • Spectra show good agreement among several decay channels in p+p and d+Au
    • A+A results have an ability to discuss hadron suppression providing intriguing systematic results.

Low pT High pT

Systematic measurement of omega in PHENIX will be published in near furture

Another Energy Correction

Correct Measured Energy Value to True Energy Value

(Assumed as E1E2 has a true value)

If energy is measured within the energy resolution band (yellow and red band),

shrink it to E1E2 curve.

Minimize Χ2 value= ((E1-E1(measured))/σE1)2 + ((E2-E2(measured))/σE2)2

where E1*E2 = m(pi0PDG)/2(1-cos)

Can correct also pT!
