Add to Calendar 10/15/2018 1:00 pm 10/15/2018 America/Chicago Medium and High Energy Physics Seminar: "Separated Bottom and Charm to Probe the Quark Gluon Plasma in PHENIX" DESCRIPTION:

Heavy flavor quarks are a good tool to probe nuclear collisions at relativistic energies as they are produced primarily in the initial parton-parton collision. Due to this fact, they experience the full evolution of the collision system.  PHENIX has produced several measurements of heavy flavor quarks through their decays, providing insight to the mass dependent energy loss experienced while propagating through the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP). This seminar will focus on a new measurement of bottom and charm quark production through semi-leptonic decays at mid rapidity in p+p collisions, as well as discuss measurements in Au+Au collisions.
