PHENIX detector at RHIC

The PHENIX detector records many different particles emerging from Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) collisions, including photons, electrons, muons, and quark-containing particles called hadrons.
sPHENIX Detector

sPHENIX Detector

sPHENIX is a collaboration, detector, and experiment proposed to succeed the PHENIX experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) that will measure jets, jet correlations and upsilons to determine the temperature dependence of transport coefficients and the color screening length in the QGP.
Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) Detector

Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) Detector

The EIC PID consortium (eRD14) has been formed to develop an integrated program for particle identification (PID) for a future Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) detector, for which excellent particle identification is an essential requirement.
Cosmic Ray Science

Cosmic Ray Science

The work conducted at Georgia State University (GSU) is focused on seasonal muon and neutron flux variations and correlation between cosmic ray flux and Earth’s dynamic weather patterns.
