Title: p-Au ramp test

During FY2015 RHIC will be providing proton-gold collisions for the first time. The large difference in Z/A of these species results in challenging conditions at injection. The two injection scenarios under investigation are injection at equal Bρ which results in different revolution frequencies of the two beams, and injection at equal revolution frequencies, which requires different rigidities of Bρ of protons and gold.
