Title: Low-momentum direct-photon measurement in Cu + Cu collisions at s N N = 200 GeV

Abstract

Here, we measured direct photons for p T < 5GeV/c in minimum bias and 0%–40% most-central events at midrapidity for Cu+Cu collisions at √ sNN = 200GeV. The e +e contribution from quasireal direct virtual photons has been determined as an excess over the known hadronic contributions in the e +e mass distribution. A clear enhancement of photons over the binary scaled p + p fit is observed for p T < 4GeV/c in Cu+Cu data. The p T spectra are consistent with the Au + Au data covering a similar number of participants. The inverse slopes of the exponential fits to the excess after subtraction of the p + p baseline are 285 ± 53(stat) ± 57(syst) MeV/c and 333 ± 72(stat) ± 45(syst) MeV/c for minimum bias and 0%–40% most-central events, respectively. The rapidity density, dN/dy, of photons demonstrates the same power law as a function of dN ch/dη observed in Au + Au at the same collision energy.

abstractNote = {Here, we measured direct photons for pT < 5GeV/c in minimum bias and 0%–40% most-central events at midrapidity for Cu+Cu collisions at √sNN = 200GeV. The e+e– contribution from quasireal direct virtual photons has been determined as an excess over the known hadronic contributions in the e+e– mass distribution. A clear enhancement of photons over the binary scaled p + p fit is observed for pT < 4GeV/c in Cu+Cu data. The pT spectra are consistent with the Au + Au data covering a similar number of participants. The inverse slopes of the exponential fits to the excess after subtraction of the p + p baseline are 285 ± 53(stat) ± 57(syst) MeV/c and 333 ± 72(stat) ± 45(syst) MeV/c for minimum bias and 0%–40% most-central events, respectively. The rapidity density, dN/dy, of photons demonstrates the same power law as a function of dNch/dη observed in Au + Au at the same collision energy.},
