Title: 430th Brookhaven Lecture

RHIC's current collision rate, known as luminosity, stands at thousands per second. But RHIC physicists want more. One approach to achieving a higher collision rate is known as stochastic cooling. In more »simple terms, this "cooling" helps keep the gold nuclei that make up RHIC's beams from spreading out. Though this approach has been used in specialized, low energy accelerators, it has never been made to work at high energy or with tightly bunched beams, until now.« less
