Abstract :

The heavy-ion program at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory is exploring the fundamental theory of strong interactions, QCD, under extreme conditions. A main goal is to create and study a deconfined and thermalized state of strongly interacting matter, the quark-gluon plasma (QGP). Five years after the first collisions the PHENIX experiment at RHIC has compiled a rich data set that has already advanced our understanding of nuclear matter under extreme conditions. With the extended statistics of the RHIC 2004 Au+Au run and the RHIC 2005 Cu+Cu run it has now been possible to obtain exciting new results on various observables.

New results on the production of particles at high pT, on heavy quarks, direct photons, J/psi, and on the modification of jets show the broad span of probes investigated by the PHENIX experiment in the quest for an understanding of matter under extreme conditions.
