Recent Quarkonium Studies from the PHENIX Experiment
NUCLEAR PHYSICS A 982 719-722
Quarkonium suppression in nucleus-nucleus collisions is a powerful tool to probe the density and temperature of the medium created in heavy ion collisions. Forward rapidity measurements in p(d)+Au collisions are essential to understand how quarkonium states are affected by initial state effects, formation time, and local particle multiplicity. Earlier measurements in Au+Au collisions showed a stronger suppression of forward J/psi compared to mid-rapidity results, indicating the possibility of a smaller contribution of regenerated quarkonium states at forward rapidity. These proceedings report on the latest quarkonium studies performed by the PHENIX collaboration in the rapidity range 1,2 < vertical bar ly vertical bar < 2.2.
