What Have We Learnt So Far at RHIC

A hot, dense medium with partonic degrees of freedom

created at RHIC:

scaling in elliptic flow

Next:

Is the system thermalized and how does the system thermalize?

What are the properties of the strongly-coupled system?

What is the phase structure of QCD matter?

What exotic particles are produced at RHIC?

What is the mechanism for partonic energy loss?

Does QCD matter demonstrate novel symmetry properties?

What is the nature of the initial state in nuclear collisions

  • Charm contribution to di-lepton spectra is significant at low mass at RHIC.
  • Charm contribution to di-lepton spectra might be dominant in the intermediate mass region. Its correlation makes a big difference to access the thermal radiation contribution from QGP.

star mtd physics motivation
STAR-MTD Physics Motivation
  • A large area of muon telescope detector
  • (MTD) at mid-rapidity, allows forthe
  • detection of
  • di-muon pairs from QGP thermal radiation,quarkonia, light vector mesons, possible correlations of quarksand gluons
  • as resonances in QGP, and Drell-Yan production
  • single muons from thesemi-leptonic decays of heavy flavor
  • hadrons
  • advantages over electrons: no  conversion, much less Dalitz decay contribution, less affected by radiative losses in the detector
  • materials, trigger capability in Au+Au
  • trigger capability for low to high pT J/ in central Au+Au collsions
  • excellent mass resolution, separate different upsilon states
  • e-muon correlation to distinguish heavy flavor production from initial lepton pair production

mtd trigger system
MTD Trigger System
  • The primary physics goal requires triggering on di-muon events sampling full luminosity.
  • To select muons and reject hadronic showers that punch through the magnet steel, a timing cut will be applied to the MTD signals.
  • Since the MTD pickup strips are ~90 cm in length and readout from both ends, the sum (E+W)/2 will be calculated in the trigger and compared to the collision time.
  • The average arrival time at MTD boxes in different eta region is different due to difference in path length.
  • The occupancy in the MTD is very low, only one east and one west signal is sent to trigger from the 60 strips of 5 MTD boxes in the same eta region at 5 nearby backlegs. This allows for a correction on the arrival time in the high eta region at trigger level. The correction could be larger than 1 ns in the highest eta region.

MTD workshop at USTC, Lijuan Ruan (BNL)

mtd trigger system1
MTD Trigger System
  • Each 12 strip MRPC is readout by 4 NINO frontend ASICs on a MINO card. Each NINO reads out 6 east ends or 6 west ends. The NINO produces a logic output signal if any of the 6 inputs is above threshold.
  • The 10 NINO signals and the corresponding east/west signals are logically combined by the MTRG card and a single east and west signal is sent to trigger from 5 MTD boxes in the same eta range at the 5 nearby backlegs.
  • Each QT can produce 8 (E+W)/2 sums. 4 QT boards required in all.
  • The QT is currently in use for the STAR trigger system.

MTD System Requirement

MTD requirements:

  • Time resolution less than 100 ps, spatial resolution ~ 1 cm.
  • The mechanics design must allow a convenient replacement of individual MTD box and access to the BEMC box.
  • The system must be able to operate in the fringe field from 0.5 Tesla STAR magnet field.
  • The system must operate at low noise rate. The total noise rate should be less than 0.5 M Hz, 1 Hz/cm2.
  • The system must be safe, meet all BNL safely requirements.
  • The system must not impair the performance of other STAR detectors.

summary
Summary
  • MTD will advance our knowledge of Quark Gluon Plasma:

trigger capability for low to high pT J/ in central Au+Au collsions

excellent mass resolution, separate different upsilon states

e-muon correlation to distinguish heavy flavor production from initial lepton pair production

different background contribution provides complementary measurements for dileptons

  • The prototype of MTD works at STAR from Run 7 to Run 10. Results published at L. Ruan et al., Journal of Physics G: Nucl. Part. Phys. 36 (2009) 095001; 0904.3774; Y. Sun et al., NIMA 593 (2008) 430.

muon purity>80%; the primary muon over secondary muon ratio: good

for quarkonium program

the trigger capability with L0 and L2: promising for dimuon program:

Upsilon, J/ elliptic flow v2 and RAA at high pT

  • The larger Run 11 modules with slightly wider readout strips show a comparable performance as the modules in Runs 7-10, based on cosmic ray tests at USTC and Tsinghua.
