BRAHMS at RHIC - Overview

Broad RAnge Hadron Magnetic Spectrometers Experiment at RHIC

The BRAHMS detector will provide RHIC with the capability for measuring inclusive momentum specta of identified charged hadrons over a wide range in rapidity and transverse momentum.
Our collaboration consists of approximately 50 physicists from 12 institutions.

For the general overviews, A good place to start is with the various contributions to the Quark Matter Conferences. Much greater detail on all aspects of the experiment may be found in the Conceptual Design Report, which was last updated in July 1995.
