Special LNS Colloquium


June 8, 2016


Matthew Musgrave, University of Sussex, UK

Status of the PSI nEDM Experiment

The strongly interacting quark-gluon plasma produced in ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions at RHIC and LHC is, by some measure, the most perfect known fluid. Understanding how this near-perfect fluidity arises from the underlying interactions of quarks and gluons is one of two main goals of heavy ion experiments at RHIC and LHC in the next decade and beyond. Multi-scale probes such as high pT jets and different quarkonia states are the key diagnostic tools in these studies. I will discuss the approach of the MIT heavy-ion group to this program using the CMS@LHC and proposed sPHENIX@RHIC experiments.
