PHENIX ExperimentThe 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.
