AbstractThe unambiguous observation of a Chiral Magnetic Effect (CME)-driven charge separation is the core aim of the isobar program at RHIC consisting of 96,40Zr+96,40Zr and 96,44Ru+96,44Ru collisions at \sqrt sNN = 200 GeV. We quantify the role of the spatial distributions of the nucleons in the isobars on both eccentricity and magnetic field strength within a relativistic hadronic transport approach (SMASH, Simulating Many Accelerated Strongly-interacting Hadrons). In particular, we introduce isospin-dependent nucleon-nucleon spatial correlations in the geometric description of both nuclei, deformation for 96,44Ru and the so-called neutron skin effect for the neutron-rich isobar i.e. 96,40Zr. The main result of this study is a reduction of the magnetic field strength difference between 96,44Ru+96,44Ru and 96,40Zr+96,40Zr by a factor of 2, from 10% to 5% in peripheral collisions when the neutron-skin effect is included. Further, we find an increase of the eccentricity ratio between the isobars by up to 10% in ultra-central collisions as due to the deformation of 96,44Ru while neither the neutron skin effect nor the nucleon-nucleon correlations result into a significant modification of this observable with respect to the traditional Woods-Saxon modeling. Our results suggest a significantly smaller CME signal to background ratio for the experimental charge separation measurement in peripheral collisions with the isobar systems than previously expected.
