Overview

Overview

  • EIC eA physics program

    • Nuclear PDF

      • Nuclei F2/FL

    • Nuclear Imaging

      • Coherent t distribution in diffraction

    • Saturation

      • Inclusive diffraction

      • Dihadron correlation

    • Parton propagation and hadronization in nuclear medium

DNP 2013, Liang Zheng


Explore the small x regime

Explore the small x regime

  • Gluons dominate at small x

    • 99% of proton mass accounted by QCD interaction

    • Gluon PDF grows explosively at small x

Must be tamed at some point

DNP 2013, Liang Zheng


Explore the small x regime1

Explore the small x regime

  • Gluons dominate at small x

    • 99% of proton mass accounted by QCD interaction

    • Gluon PDF grows explosively at small x

  • Nonlinear evolution like BK alternative to DGLAP, BFKL due to gluon recombination.

  • Saturation regime, Q2<<Q2s(x)

DNP 2013, Liang Zheng


Nuclear amplification

Nuclear amplification

  • Gluon density scales as nuclear size

  • Effective x much smaller in a nuclei

DNP 2013, Liang Zheng


Eic ea kinematics coverage

EIC eA kinematics coverage

  • Largely extend current reach

  • Possible to explore the saturation regime

DNP 2013, Liang Zheng


Diffractive cross section

Diffractive cross section

  • σdiff/σtot 15% at HERA, predicted 25-40% in eA

  • σdiff~g(x,Q2)2

Color-neutral exchange

Rapidity gap: Signature of a diffractive event.

t=(p-p’)2

DNP 2013, Liang Zheng


Diffractive cross section1

Diffractive cross section

  • Significant difference between saturation and non-saturation

  • Strong discrimination power within a few months of running.

DNP 2013, Liang Zheng


Dihadron correlation

Dihadron correlation

Xiao, Dominguez, Yuan 2011/2012

  • Back to back hadron pairs decorrelate

  • Strong suppression at away side predicted by saturation

  • Probe nuclei in kT space.

Charged particles

  • Nuclear effect:

  • nPDF EPS09

  • Cold nuclear medium energy loss

DNP 2013, Liang Zheng


Dihadron correlation saturation

Dihadron correlation: saturation

  • Constrain sat/nosat models a lot with limited statistics of 1fb-1.

  • Strong suppression can not be reproduced by the nosat model.

DNP 2013, Liang Zheng


Summary

Summary

  • Key eA measurements at EIC:

    • Ratio of diffractive cross section to total, “day one” measurement

    • Dihadron correlation in ep/eA, mark out the saturation region with a low luminosity requirement and ep baseline

    • More details :

      • arXiv:1212.1701 EIC White paper

      • wiki.bnl.gov/eic/index.php/Main_Page

  • What can we learn from this

    • Understand the collective dynamics of gluons

    • Investigate inner landscape of a nuclei

    • Provide initial state input to pA/AA
