The PHOBOS experiment at RHIC - physics and capabilities.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The PHOBOS experiment at RHIC is designed to study multiplicity distributions and fluctuations over all of 4{pi}, as well as particle spectra and correlations at mid rapidity, with a particular emphasis on physics at low p{sub T}. The experiment is relatively small and relies almost entirely on silicon pad detector technology. The flexibility of the design, the conservative nature of the technologies used, and the ability to take data at high rates place the experiment in a good position to search for exotic physics from heavy-ion collisions at the early stages of RHIC operations.
