Title: Chiral magnetic effect in isobaric collisions

Abstract

We give a numerical simulation of the generation of the magnetic field and the charge-separation signal due to the chiral magnetic effect (CME) — the induction of an electric current by the magnetic field in a parity-odd matter — in the collisions of isobaric nuclei, 96 44Ru + 96 44Ru and 96 40Zr + 96 40Zr, at $$\sqrt{s}$$NN = 200 GeV. We show that such collisions provide an ideal tool to disentangle the CME signal from the possible elliptic-flow driven background effects. As a result we also discuss some other effects that can be tested by using the isobaric collisions.
