Introduction

  • STAR is planning for the future – next decade plans for HI and pp.

  • Ensure vibrant physics program through a continued upgrade program.

  • Sure that you will hear more about the pp and spin related physics that can be done with particular the Forward Gem Tracker, and the proposed Forward Hadron Calorimeter and the Roman Pot phase-2 upgrade (aka pp2pp)

  • Obviously this will be brief.

Forward Gem Tracker

  • Physics Motivation

    Extend quark/anti quark polarization measurements to 1< h <2 by providing charge separation for e+- via high precision tracking in front of EMC end cap.

  • Schedule

    • Goal: Complete FGT construction in ~fall 2010 followed by full system test and subsequent full installation in ~summer 2011 ⇒ Ready for anticipated first long 500GeV polarized pp run in FY12

    • Construction well underway

Heavy Flavor Tracker upgrade

  • Heavy quark is one of the ideal probes to quantify the properties of the hot dense medium created in relativistic heavy ion collisions.

  • Heavy quark program at RHIC/STAR is underway. Present physics conclusions are rather qualitative.

  • With detector upgrades, STAR will be able to perform precision measurements on open charm and bottom measurements in p+p, p(d)+A, and A+A collisions.

  • Precision measurements via direct reconstruction of displayed vertices and particle identification over 2pi covering low and high pT

  • SSD (existing double sided strip detector) is the outer layer

  • IST is a layer of silicon strip

  • PIXEL is 2 inner layers of high resolution

  • Pixel (MAPS) (18*18 mm) and thin ~0.4% Xo per layer

~ 30 microns pointing resolution at 0.7 GeV/c

~ 30 microns secondary vertex resolution (large p)

Hft status

HFT status

  • R&D for the pixel sensors, readout and support structure has been successfully carried out over several years.

  • Design and layout is mature.

  • CD-1 review November. Following anticipated CD-1 approval, preparing for base-lining of project with review 6-8 months from now.

  • Challenging to have complete system ready for run-14.

  • Limited capabilities for p+p 500 GeV due to expected radiation levels for the inner most PXL layers (removal), though outer IST and SSD will add fast tracking information at mid-rapidity.

Mtd muons penetrating probes

MTD Muons: Penetrating Probes

+-

A large area of muon telescope detector

(MTD) at mid-rapidity, allows forthe

detection of

  • di-muon pairs from QGP thermal

    radiation,quarkonia, light vector mesons,

    possible correlations of quarksand gluons

    as resonances in QGP, and Drell-Yan

    production

  • single muons from theirsemi-

    leptonic decays of heavy flavor

    hadrons

  • advantages over electrons: no 

    conversion, much less Dalitz decay

    contribution, less affected by

    radiative losses in the detector

    materials, trigger capability in Au+Au

Summary of what have been done for the r d

Summary of what have been done for the R&D

  • Cosmic and beam tests:

    intrinsic timing resolution of long MRPC: ~60-70 ps

    spatial resolution: ~1 cm

    results have been summarized and published at Y. Sun et al., nucl-ex/0805.2459;

    NIMA 593, 430 (2008)

  • The prototype of MTD works at STAR. We observed:

    ---- clear narrow muon peak

    ---- Muon purity can be achieved >80%

  • The primary muon over secondary muon ratio is good for quarkonium program

  • The trigger capability with L0 and L2 is promising for dimuon program: Upsilon, J/ elliptic flow v2 and RAA at high pT

    Results at STAR have been summarized and published at L. Ruan et al., 0904.3774, Journal of Physics G: Nucl. Part. Phys. 36 (2009) 095001

Physics with high level trigger

Physics with High Level Trigger

The HLT enhances the physics analysis by selecting events of interest in near real time, and filter for events written to tape.

Some Examples

  • The study of heavy flavor production and collective flow that will profoundly enhance our understanding of the properties of the produced Quark Gluon Plasma and the associated phase transition.

  • The study of di-lepton mass spectrum that helps us understand the thermal radiation and constrain the initial temperature

  • J/Psi measurements at high pT

only

Detectable hadrons and photons within acceptance of FMS+FHC are used for summed-energy trigger and for cone-based jet reconstruction.

Photon-only jets do not measure the scattered parton energy.

Combining hadronic + EM energy does measure the scattered parton energy, limited mostly by fragmentation effects.

Many jets are not particularly “jetty”, meaning only few hadrons are within the acceptance. Jets with few hadrons do not give a good measure of the scattered parton energy. Invariant mass from the FMS+FHC can discriminate “jetty” versus “non-jetty” fragmentations.

Technical Implementation and Status

1.A new vacuum chamber in DX-D0 region will be needed to accommodate Roman Pots to allow maximum acceptance, namely accept protons that clear the aperture of the DX magnet.

  • Detailed proposal submitted to STAR.

  • Technically it can be mounted in 2-3 years.

  • There is a dedicated talk by Wlodek Tomorrow.

Tpc in high luminosity era prospects

TPC in High Luminosity EraProspects

  • TPX upgrade completed last year (<5% dead at 1kHz). S/B ~30 vs.20 for old electronics

  • Increase in space charge due to Luminosity and faster readout.

  • Results in more trips, and larger corrections.

    • Reduce HV on anode wires; extensive studies were done in run-9; Looks good.

    • Corrections are still under control.

    • Adding monitoring will improve this

  • Challenging but under control

Summary

Summary

  • STAR upgrades addresses a wide range of physics measurements

    FGT addresses W spin physics

    HFT Heavy Quark physics in AA and pp (200 GeV)

  • Proposed upgrades

    MTD will enhance J/Psi, Y physics in AA and pp

    FHC can address forward jet physics in pp, dA.

    The HLT can significantly increase STAR capabilities in analysis by enhancing data samples.

    Roman Pots phase-2 addresses fundamental hadron physics in pp

  • In addition to these STAR continues to upgrade the trigger system.

  • It is a challenge to prioritize and have these available for physics measurements

  • New upgrade proposals are being internally reviewed in STAR.

  • There is a STAR upgrade Meeting at BNL on December 17-18 to prioritize upgrades in context of STAR future program.
