PHENIX Experiment

The PHENIX Experiment is the largest of the four experiments that have taken data at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory.

PHENIX, the Pioneering High Energy Nuclear Interaction eXperiment, is an exploratory experiment for the investigation of high energy collisions of heavy ions and protons. PHENIX is designed specifically to measure direct probes of the collisions such as electrons, muons, and photons. The primary goal of PHENIX is to discover and study a new state of matter called the Quark-Gluon Plasma.

Sea Quest

The SeaQuest experiment (E-906) is part of a series of fixed target Drell-Yan experiments that have taken place at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory designed to measure the quark and antiquark structure of the nucleon and the modifications to that structure which occur when the nucleon is embedded in a nucleus. With these measurements, we are also able to quantify the energy loss of a colored parton (quark) travelling through cold, strongly-interacting matter.
