Introduction baryon anomaly at rhic
Introduction properties at RHIC-PHENIX ~ Baryon Anomaly at RHIC ~

PHENIX: PRL 91, 172301 (2003), PRC 69, 034909 (2004), PRC 74, 024904 (2006)

  • In Au+Au sNN = 200 GeV central collisions:

  • RCP (or RAA)

    • Pions: Strong suppression of yields above pT ~ 2 GeV/c, due to jet quenching effect.

    • Protons: No suppression for at intermediate pT (2-5 GeV/c).

  • p/ and p/ ratios

    • More (anti) baryons than pions at intermediate pT (2-5 GeV/c).

    • Strong centrality dependence.

  • Called “Baryon anomaly at RHIC”.

  • Quark recombination models reproduce the data qualitatively.


What is the definition of baryon anomaly at rhic
What is the definition of baryon anomaly at RHIC? properties at RHIC-PHENIX

  • pT region of interest is the intermediate pT (2.0 - 5.0 GeV/c).

  • p/ (p/) ratios are much larger than the fragmentation expectations (p+p).

    • Strong centrality dependence in heavy ion data.

  • Different nuclear modification factor (RCP or RAA) between pions and (anti)protons.

    • Pions: suppression.

    • (anti)protons: no suppression.


Remaining questions
Remaining questions properties at RHIC-PHENIX

  • Where is the onset of baryon anomaly at RHIC?

  • How p/ and p/ ratios and RAA evolve as a function of s and colliding system?

  • The following low energy data sets have been taken by the PHENIX experiment recently, and they may give us an answer to questions above.

  • Lower beam energy data in PHENIX.

    • Au+Au 62.4 GeV (2004)

    • Cu+Cu 62.4 GeV (2005)

    • Cu+Cu 22.5 GeV (2005)

    • p+p 62.4 GeV (2006)

PID charged pT spectra analysis in PHENIX

  • Detectors:

    • Drift Chamber, PC1, BBC and TOF for PID charged analysis.

  • Centrality:

    • Subdivided minimum bias triggered events, based on BBC charge (62 GeV), or the number of PC1 hit (22 GeV).

  • Corrections:

    • Geometrical acceptance, in flight decay.

    • NOTE: No weak decay feed-down correction applied for all plots in this presentation.

Conclusions
Conclusions properties at RHIC-PHENIX

  • Antiproton is a good probe to study the excitation function of baryon anomaly.

  • Only antiprotons in Cu+Cu 22.5 GeV system is different from others:

    • No centrality dependence in p/ ratio at the intermediate pT.

    • Central 0-10% p/ ratio agrees with the value in p+p collisions.

  • From 62 GeV Cu+Cu/Au+Au data:

    • p/- ratio:

      • Baryon anomaly still exists in central Au+Au “AND” Cu+Cu 62 GeV.

    • RAA (by ISR fit, limited pT < 2.5 ~ 3.0 GeV/c)

      • : moderate suppression in Au+Au 62 GeV, unity for Cu+Cu 62 GeV.

      • p: larger in Cu+Cu than that in Au+Au (baryon transportation).

      • p: small differences between Cu+Cu and Au+Au, close to one.

      • To conclude on RAA, it is important to measure the absolute normalized pT spectra in p+p 62.4 GeV.

  • Summary: Data indicates that an onset of baryon anomaly at RHIC is in between 22 GeV and 62 GeV.
