Description

The BRAHMS results on the proton-to-pion ratio pT-dependence in the RHIC range of baryo-chemical potential N. Katryńska, Z. Majka (for the BRAHMS Collaboration) BRAHMS measurement of proton-to-pion ratios in Au+Au and p+p at (s NN) ½ = 62.4 GeV and 200 GeV will be presented as a function of transverse momentum and collision centrality within the pseudorapidity range 0 < η < 3. The baryo-chemical potential, μB, for the indicated data spans from μB ~ 25 MeV ( (s NN) ½ = 200 GeV, η = 0) to μB ~ 260 MeV ((s NN) ½ = 62.4 GeV, η ~ 3) [1]. A striking agreement between p/π(p T) ratio measured for Au+Au collisions at (s NN) ½ = 200 GeV (η ~ 2.2) and at (s NN) ½ = 62.4 GeV (η ~ 0) is observed, where the properties of the bulk medium can be described with the common value of μB = 65 MeV. The p/π ratio for Au+Au system at (s NN) ½ = 62.4 GeV, η ~ 3 reaches astounding value of 8-10 at pT = 1.5 GeV/c. For these energy and pseudorapidity interval no centrality dependency of p/π ratio is observed. Comparison of the measured p/π+ and pbar/π- ratios at different beam energies and rapidities with theoretical models [2,3,4] will be provided. [1] I.
