Study of bottom production with the STAR Heavy Flavor Tracker
We explore the possibility of measuring B-hadrons produced in heavy ion reactions at relativistic heavy ion collider through the semi-leptonic decay B → e + X with the STAR Heavy Flavor Tracker. We
Non Photonic e−D0correlations in p+pand Au+Aucollisions at SNN = 200 GeV
The sum of charm and beauty in Au + Au collisions at 200 GeV measured through non‐photonic electrons, show similar suppression at high p T as light hadrons, in contrast to expectations based on the
Measurement of Transverse Single Spin Asymmetries for pi 0 and Jets at Large xF in √ s = 500 GeV Polarized Proton Collisions at STAR
Asymmetries in the production of final state particles from collider or fixed-target experiments with polarized beams or target could provide valuable information on the spin structure of the
Examination of the species and beam energy dependence of particle spectra using Tsallis statistics
Tsallis statistics was used to investigate the non-Boltzmann distribution of particle spectra and their dependence on particle species and beam energy in the relativistic heavy-ion collisions at SPS
Electronics for a highly segmented electromagnetic calorimeter prototype
A prototype of a highly segmented electromagnetic calorimeter has been developed, using 24 layers of PHASE2/MIMOSA23 silicon sensors sandwiched between tungsten plates, resulting in 39 MPixels for the complete prototype detector tower.
Future of Low Mass Pixel Systems with MAPS
This paper explores first architectures which exploit the newest planar CMOS technologies and considers how integration techniques may help to enhance the performances of a single layer, and considers the promises of the latest 3D integration technologies.


STAR inner tracking upgrade—a performance study
Anisotropic flow measurements have demonstrated development of partonic collectivity in 200 GeV Au+Au collisions at RHIC. To understand the partonic EOS, thermalization must be addressed. Collective
A Heavy Flavor Tracker for STAR
The STAR Collaboration proposes to construct a state-of-the-art microvertex detector, the Heavy Flavor Tracker (HFT), utilizing active pixel sensors and silicon strip technology. The HFT will
Lambdac enhancement from strongly coupled quark-gluon plasma.
In the coalescence model, the Lambdac/D yield ratio is enhanced substantially due to the diquark correlation, and it is argued that the direct two-body collision between a c quark and a [ud] diquarks would lead to an enhanced Lambdacs production in comparison with the normal three- body collision.
