Henry Klest (Stony Brook University) Physics and Detectors at Nuclear Colliders: Prospective interdisciplinary measurements and technologies at U.S based facilities in the coming decades

October 28, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


High energy nuclear physics in the U.S. is undergoing a revitalization 22 years after the turn on of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Lab. Two major upcoming experimental efforts, sPHENIX at RHIC, planned to turn on next year, and the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC), planned to start running in 2032, are coming to fruition. With these new facilities come new opportunities to explore physics and hardware complementarity with other fields. In this talk, I will briefly discuss the heavy ion program at RHIC, focusing on the design and construction of the sPHENIX TPC. I will also outline some of the planned measurements and detector technologies for the EIC and their generic applications to other fields.
