Physics PAN Seminar by Dr. Matthew Kelsey (Wayne State University)

Title: "Heavy Flavor in Nuclear Science"

Abstract: Measurements of hadrons containing heavy flavor quarks has emerged as one of the pillars of heavy-ion physics due to the nature of their production, which allows them to be treated as “external” probes of the de-confined medium produced in heavy-ion collisions. Their utility in probing the various stages of the heavy-ion collisions, spanning from the initial conditions to hadronization, has been exploited at both the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider (RHIC) and Large Hadron Collider (LHC), with some interesting results emerging in recent years. In this seminar I will give an experimental review of (open) heavy flavor hadron measurements in heavy-ion collisions, with a focus on recent results from the STAR collaboration which has extended the measurements into the bottom quark sector.  Additionally, with the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) emerging as the future US-based precision QCD machine set to supersede RHIC, I will highlight potential experimental opportunities with heavy flavor with a precision silicon-based vertex detector.
