AB - Heavy ion collision cross sections totaling several hundred barns have been calculated previously for the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). These total cross sections are more than one order of magnitude larger than the geometric ion-ion cross sections, primarily due to Bound-Free Pair Production (BFPP) and Electro-Magnetic Dissociation (EMD). Apart from a general interest in verifying the calculations experimentally, an accurate prediction of the losses created in the heavy ion collisions is of practical interest for RHIC and the LHC, where some collision products are lost in cryogenically cooled magnets. These losses have the potential to affect power and signal electronic devices and quench superconducing magnets. We have previously reported the total cross section measurement of U+U collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 192.8 GeV per nucleon-pair. Here we present the equivalent analysis for Au+Au collisions with the data available from a low-intensity store of RHIC Run in 2014.
