Experiment STARALICE logo

STAR – The Solenoid Tracker At the RHIC – is a massive detector designed to study hadron production and to search for a sign of the existence of quark- gluon plasma,  which is a special state of matter of extremely high density and energy. It is supposed that this matter existed at a temperature in the order 10 12 K during the first microseconds after the Big Bang. Labory production of QGP can help understand  the past, present and future of the Universe. Among the most recent discoveries of the experiment STAR are anti-helium 4 in 2011 and antihypertritium in 2010. This experiment is based on  the accelerator  RHIC in BNL.    

A Czech team has been involved for many years in data analysis of this experiment, namely analysis of particles with charm quark content, jets, non-photonic electrons and partial correlation. For 2014, there is a project for the upgrade of the STAR detector, in which the Czech team will participate.  It concerns the Heavy Flavour Tracker (HFT), the detector for the analysis of quark with charm, strange or bottom content.  Team members take part in testing the detector module and in the simulation of particle reconstruction. Another task in which the Czech team is involved is storing data from the experiment STAR. All the team-members participate personally in data collection in Brookhaven National Laboratory as detector operators or shift leaders.
