The PHENIX forward spectrometer upgrade

  • Kenneth N. Barish


The forward spectrometer upgrade of the PHENIX detector aims to add capabilities at forward rapidities to: probe nucleon structure through W production and promptphotons in polarized p + p, study nucleon structure in nuclei at high parton densities in p + A collisions through the measurement of γ and π0 in the forward region, greatly extend the acceptance for high pT γ-jet measurements (jet tomography) in A + A, and increase our capabilities to measure the production quarkonium states by giving sensitivity to the χ c through the J/ψ + γ channel.
