Description

The suppression of quarkonia in heavy ion collisions has long been thought to provide an indication of the temperature dependent Debye screening length of color charge in the quark gluon plasma. A large sample of Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$=200 GeV have been collected by PHENIX in 2010. Using the PHENIX measurement of Upsilon production in p+p collisions as a reference, we will present the preliminary measurement of nuclear modification factor for Upsilon(1S+2S+3S) at mid-rapidity.
