Copper vs. Copper at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (2005)

To investigate a new form of matter not seen since the Big Bang, scientists are using a new experimental probe: collisions between two beams of copper ions. The use of intermediate size nuclei is expected to result in intermediate energy density - not as

RHIC - Exploring the Universe Within

A guided tour of Brookhaven's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) conducted by past Laboratory Director John Marburger. RHIC is a world-class scientific research facility that began operation in 2000, following 10 years of development and construction. Hundreds of physicists from around the world use RHIC to study what the universe may have looked like in the first few moments after its creation. RHIC drives two intersecting beams of gold ions head-on, in a subatomic collision. What physicists learn from these collisions may help us understand more about why the physical world works the way it does, from the smallest subatomic particles, to the largest stars.

RHIC The Perfect Liquid

Evidence to date suggests that gold-gold collisions the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven are indeed creating a new state of hot, dense matter, but one quite different and even more remarkable than had been predicted. Instead of behaving like a gas of free quarks and gluons, as was expected, the matter created in RHIC's heavy ion collisions appears to be more like a "perfect" liquid.

428th Brookhaven Lecture

At Brookhaven Lab, a team of researchers has overcome a major x-ray focusing obstacle to allow the study of molecules, atoms, and advanced materials at the nanoscale, which is on the order of billionths of a meter. Their innovative method uses a type of refractive lens called a kinoform lens --similar to the kind found in lighthouses -- in order to focus the x-rays down to the extremely small spots needed for a sharp image at small dimensions.

415th Brookhaven Lecture

"Atomic-Layer Engineering of Cuprate Superconductors." Copper-oxide compounds, called cuprates, show superconducting properties at 163 degrees Kelvin, the highest temperature of any known superconducting material. Cuprates are therefore among the "high-temperature superconductors" of extreme interest both to scientists and to industry. Research to learn their secrets is one of the hottest topics in the field of materials science.

404th Brookhaven Lecture

"Nanovision: Nanotubes, Nanowires and Nanoparticles." Wong's "nanovision," as he explains, emerges from how the study of carbon and non-carbon forms of materials at the nanoscale reveals different morphological structures: some are tiny tubes, others are like wires, and others are in particle form. These minute nanostructures yield different properties as they are treated in different ways.

413th Brookhaven Lecture

"The Quest for High Luminosity in Hadron Colliders" Colliders have two vital performance parameters on which their success depends: one is their collision energy, and the other, the number of particle collisions they can produce, which is proportional to a quantity known as the luminosity. One of the tremendous achievements in the world's latest collider, RHIC, is the amazing luminosity that it produces in addition to its high energy.
