Instrumentation (engineering, Gamma/pi0 design, front end chip)

UCR (Simulations, management, software)

ISU (Trigger, Simulations)

UIUC (Simulations, Physics ideas)

Nevis (chi – FEE readout)

Korea (Si- pads/gammapi0)



SENS: company



Riken (lab)

Czech Republic (Gamma/pi0 testing, constuction)

Charles U

Academy of Sciences

Prague Tech U

ON semiconductor:company


Moscow State U (Si pad design, testing, engineering)

JINR-Dubna – 2 groups (lab) (Engineering, Mechanics, tungsten, assembly)

MEPHI (front end electronics)

Ekaterinbourg (company- board assembly)

RIMST-ELMA (company-Si construction)


Management Plan

  • Operate in the structure of PHENIX

    • The “Forward upgrades group” meets and works together (RKS chairs meeting now)

      • Muon Piston Calorimeter (3<eta<4) : going in now

      • Muon spectrometer trigger (NSF MRI funding)

      • NCC

  • We will have to work out a management structure – once we have all the responsibilities assigned

    • For construction (EK)

    • For Money DOE/Riken/Other (RKS)

40x design luminosity for

Au-Au via electron cooling


Long term upgrades


PHENIX view of RHIC Upgrade Plans

Long term: full detector

and RHIC upgrades

Near term: Base line

Medium term: first upgrades

2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018

Analysis of

data on tape

Near term detector

upgrades of PHENIX

TOF-W, HBD, VTX , mTrig

RHIC luminosity upgrade

PHENIX upgrades

Full utilization of RHIC opportunities:

Studies of QGP with rare probes:

jet tomography, open flavor,

J/, ’, c, (1s), (2s), (3s)

Complete spin physics program

p-A physics

RHIC baseline program

Au-Au ~ 250 mb-1 at 200 GeV

Species scan at 200 GeV

Au-Au energy scan

Polarized protons  150 nb-1

Extended program with 1st detector upgrades:

Au-Au ~ 1.5 nb-1 at 200 GeV

Polarized p at 500 GeV

(start p-A program)

NCC Funding

  • Small amount of funding so far for R and D

    • Riken, UCR, BNL, Local Russian funding for themselves, Czech for themselves (a fair amount)

  • What do we need?

    • R and D

    • I claim with $3M in cash we can build one side, with $7M we can build both sides

      • this might change as we do a better cost estimate in the next month

    • Purchasing Si and W now (~200K worth Riken)

  • Major funding

    • Riken $1M-$3M

    • DOE ~$4M - $4.5M

    • Other ~$1M

  • Major question - timing
