We extend a semi-analytical model that includes the finite nuclear thickness to calculate the energy density (t) and conserved-charge densities including the net-baryon density nB(t) produced at mid-pseudorapidity in central Au+Au collisions at different energies. Assuming the formation of an equilibrated quark-gluon plasma with either quantum statistics or Boltzmann statistics, we extract the temperature T and chemical potentials μB, μS and μQ as functions of time. This then allows us to semi…
