High Energy Nuclear Physics Team

The P-25 HENP team studies nucleon structure and the matter formed in high energy heavy ion collisions, using the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider facility at BNL, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, and the Fermilab Accelerator facilities.

Experimental Research

We are participating in PHENIX data analyses, development of the new sPHENIX detector for RHIC, and are participating in development of the future Electron Ion Collider (EIC) program.  We are also participating in searches for the origin of the proton spin at RHIC and FNAL, looking for evidence of dark matter using FNAL experiment E1039, and searching for evidence of gluon saturation using the LHCb detector.
