Description

Scientific program of NICA (Nuclotron-based Ion Collider fAcility) is now under realization phase at JINR (Dubna). The main goal of the program is an experimental study of hot and dense strongly interacting matter in heavy ion collisions at centre-of-mass energies of √sNN = 4-11 GeV (NN-equivalent) and at average luminosity of 10E27 cm-2 s-1 for Au (79+) in the collider mode (NICA collider). In parallel, fixed target experiments at the upgraded JINR superconducting synchrotron Nuclotron are carried out in the extracted beams of various nuclei species up to Au (79+) with maximum momenta of 13 GeV/c (for protons). The program also foresees a study of spin physics with extracted and colliding beams of polarized deuterons and protons at the energies up to √s = 26 GeV (for protons). The proposed program allows to search for possible signs of the mixed phase and critical endpoint, and to shed more light on the problem of nucleon spin structure. General design and construction status of the complex is presented.
