"Colliding Gold Nuclei at Brookhaven Lab and the Creation of the Hottest Matter on Earth"
(Lecture/Discussion)

Dr. Mickey Chui, Brookhaven National Lab

The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Lab is one of the most flexible colliders ever built, with the capability colliding all species of nuclei, from protons to heavier nuclei like gold, and is an ideal laboratory for studying aspects of the theory governing the strong force, Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD). With the shutdown of the Tevatron it is also the last remaining collider in the U.S. We will present the results from the last decade of running at RHIC, including the discovery of the Quark-Gluon Plasma and the creation of the hottest matter on earth, and what we have learned about QCD from
our studies.
