Congratulations to Dr. Ting Lin on successfully defended his PhD thesis at
Indiana University. His thesis title is: "Longitudinal double-spin
asymmetries for di-jet production at intermediate pseudorapidity in
polarized pp collisions at √s = 200 GeV".
Congratulations to Dr. Xinjie Huang on successfully defended his PhD thesis
at Tsinghua University. His thesis title is: “Study of the Moun Telescope
Detector at RHIC and the Upsilon production in Au+Au collisions at 200GeV".
Congratulations to Dr. Jan Rusnak on successfully defended his PhD thesis
at the Nuclear Physics Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences. His
thesis title is: "Jet Reconstruction in Au+Au collisions at RHIC".
Interesting low pT di-leption physics from juniors Shuai Yang & Wangmei Zha
kick off the October 2017 edition of the STAR Newsletter. We also hear from our
Spokespersons and Computing Leadership on hardware and software activities,
about the Blind Analysis Committee & CME Focus Group, and also the 2nd
CBM-STAR workshop and the fall DNP meeting.
We get to know another of our new collaborating institutions in the August
2017 edition of the STAR Newsletter, and hear about programatic
directions of our Czech collaborating institutions. Also, we toast to 20
years of seeing particles in the STAR TPC, as well as a successful Summer
Sunday of public outreach.
Congratulations to Dr. Kevin Adkins on successfully defended his Ph.D.
thesis at University of Kentucky his thesis title is: "Studying Transverse
Momentum Dependent Distributions in Polarized Proton Collisions via
Azimuthal Single Spin Asymmetries of Charged Pions in Jets"
