Sivers effect

Sivers effect

It is sensitive to proton spin and related to parton orbital angular momentum

Sivers Function

Perturbative LO Twist-3 Calculations (Qiu-Sterman, Efremov, Koike) is related

Two Possibilities:

1. Nuclear Shadowing (angular momentum)

2. Impact Parameter Space Changes with polarization

  • Attractive rescattering of hit quark by gluon creates transverse momentum

  • M.Burkardt [hep-ph0309269] – impact parameter formalism

  • Orbital angular momentum at finite impact parameter

  • Observed and true x differ

  • Observable left/right asymmetry

Acceptance correction

Acceptance Correction

Fragmentation is not included, kT┴, kT|| were studied

Toy MC simulation:

  • A simple “Gaussian” model

    • kT┴ and kT|| are Gaussian distributions

      PRD 74, 072002 (2006)

    • The kT┴ distribution “shift” due to the Sivers effect

  • Parametrizes the pythia output to inject an asymmetry

  • Calculate the output asymmetry in acceptance

  • Asymmetry of kT┴ is diluted

  • Asymmetry of kT|| is enhanced

Output Asymmetry

Full 2πAcceptance

PHENIX Acceptance

Input Asymmetry

Fragmentation dilution

Fragmentation Dilution

Toy MC simulation:

  • A recent global analysis of fragmentation functions for charged hadrons was Included

  • The parameterization for light quarks only

  • The transverse momentum of each “hadron” is smeared using a Gaussian jT,

    PRD 74, 072002 (2006)

  • Use the same cuts for real data analysis to select the hadron pair

  • Calculate output asymmetry respect to input asymmetry to extract dilution factor

Output Asymmetry

PHENIX Acceptance

Preliminary result from phenix in run 6

Preliminary Result from PHENIX in run-6

  • qT┴ should show an asymmetry due to Sivers function.

  • qT|| should show no asymmetry, only for cross check.

  • Measurement result: the asymmetry for qT┴ due to Sivers effect is consistent with zero.

  • Fragmentation dilution factor is not included.

If an asymmetry is measured

By C.J. Bomhof et al.

  • Central arms: ||<0.35, =290o

  • Muon arms: 1.2<||<2.4, =360o

    • New muon arm hadron trigger was used

  • MPC: 3.1<||<3.7, =360o (See M.Chiu’s talk)

  • Higher luminosity — more than twice recorded luminosity in run6

Feng Wei


Summary

Summary

  • PHENIX measured the asymmetry due to the Sivers effect consistent with zero in di-hadron correlation at mid-rapidity. More data would produce a better constraint.

  • Theory suggests that the asymmetry may be larger at forward rapidity than that at mid-rapidity

  • Exciting results can be expected from run8 at forward rapidity

    • Central-Muon arm di-hadron correlation

    • Di-hadron measurement with the MPC (See M.Chiu’s Talk)
