Description

Results from the Beam Energy Scan (BES) program conducted recently by STAR experiment at RHIC are presented. The data from Phase-I of the BES program collected in Au+Au collisions at center-of-mass energies (\sqrt{s_{NN}}) of 7.7, 11.5, 19.6, 27, and 39 GeV cover a wide range of baryon chemical potential \mu_B (100-400 MeV) in the QCD phase diagram. Several STAR results from the BES Phase-I aimed to search for "turn-off" of strongly inter- acting quark-gluon plasma (sQGP) signatures and signals of QCD phase boundary are reported. In addition to this, an outlook is presented for the future BES Phase-II program and a possible fixed target program at STAR.
