STAR testing
December 13, 2018

Wright Lab Professor Helen Caines reports that the Solenoidal Tracker (STAR) at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory will commence its beam energy scan phase two, a high precision exploration of the high baryon density region of the QCD phase diagram, in February 2019.  In preparation for this study, several new detectors and upgrades have been installed. This festive video of STAR shows ongoing commissioning of the TPC’s new electronics.  Caines is co-spokesperson for STAR.
