Title: Improving the luminosity for Beam Energy Scan II at RHIC

Abstract

The QCD (Quantum Chromodynamics) phase diagram [1], one of the most im-portant graphs in nuclear physics, has many uncharted territories. In particular,the nature of the transformation from Quark-Gluon plasma (QGP) to the stateof Hadronic gas is totally unknown [2]. A beam energy scan [3,4], scanning thephase diagram with variable collision energy, has been conducted at RHIC toexplore the first-order phase transition and determine the location of a possible critical point.
