PHENIX Upgrade Plans for the Next Decade.

Kieran Boyle
Over its first twelve years, the PHENIX experiment has studied the spin structure of the proton, cold nuclear matter (CNM) in d+Au and discovered a strongly coupled quark gluon plasma in Au+Au collisions. We present the near- and long-term upgrades planned for PHENIX. The MPC-EX, a preshower for the forward calorimeter, is expected to be installed by 2014. A larger upgrade of PHENIX, envisions replacing the central arm with a compact jet detector, as well...
