HERA-g, a new experiment for glueball & hybrid studies at DESY with the HERA-B detector
Studies performed on data samples acquired by the HERA-B collaboration
showed that the detector is perfectly suited to be the next-generation
More precisely we realized that
a) the high proton beam momentum of HERA (920 GeV)
b) the very good acceptance of the HERA-B forward spectrometer
c) the high-speed pipelined DAQ system
allow unprecedented statistics to be acquired on glueball and exotics centrally
produced by applying a simple trigger scheme
based on vetoing events that have particles in forward and/or
backward rapidity gaps.
The results of our studies were presented at the Hadron 2003 Conference in
Aschaffenburg at the beginning of September.
Our proposal encountered the approval of the scientific community
present at that conference and many physicists expressed the intention to
be informed about the development of the formation of new collaboration
based on the physics program shown.
This page is expressely done for all the physicists interested in joining
our experiment in order they can find here some material and addresses of
people they can contact.
The material presented is at the moment limited to what can be public
in the HERA-B collaboration, that means, the talk at Hadron 2003 (see the Talks
link on the right side menu bar), and the official version
of the proposal.
This public page will be updated with new information as soon they will be available.
