how much do we build
How much do we build?
  • NSAC milestones
    • Gluon structure function in nuclei
    • G, g(x)
    • Sivers, Collins
    • Jet-particle correlations in AuAu
  • We will want a minimum of 1 side for all physics ($3.4M)
    • Once we build one, we have space to build a second – cheaper
    • What will we gain?
      • Other side in pA, dA or any other asymmetric collision
        • region not explored at RHIC
      • Different rapidity region, larger rapidity coverage
        • e.g. jet-jet for Sivers
      • factor of 2 in statistics (remember a RHIC run in $100M)
  • For now we will concentrate on one side

funding concept
Funding concept
  • Part 1
    • 1 side pads only $1.9M
    • BNL
  • Part 2
    • remainder for strips(/0) gamma/pi0
nsf mri special call stimulus
NSF MRI – special call (stimulus)
  • Announced ~ 1 week ago
  • Preproposal (at UCR, SUNY) due in early June (4th) 3 page summary, budget sketch, bio’s
  • Proposal Due in Aug 10
    • 15 pages are dedicated to the actual technical and scientific proposal. The rest is budget justification, references, CVs and institutional letters of support
    • It will be necessary to have letters of support from BNL and PHENIX management in the attachment to the MRI.
  • by end Summer 2009
    • R and D done for prototype (run will be in April)
    • Simulations reaching conclusion
  • By Fall 2009 – Final proposal ready, production ready
  • Detailed schedule needs to be worked out
    • but installation and commissioning by early 2012 seems reasonable (2 years)
    • e.g. 160 supertowers @2/week =80 weeks
  • R and D is well advanced
  • Ready to go into production
  • have people
  • But we need cash
  • project ready to go by summer – after test beam (proposal ready by Fall)
