Abstract / Description:The acceptance-corrected dielectron excess mass spectra, where the known hadronic sources have been subtracted from the inclusive dielectron mass spectra, are reported for the first time at mid-rapidity |y_{ee}|<1 in minimum-bias Au+Au collisions at sqrt{s_NN} = 19.6 and 200 GeV. The excess mass spectra are consistently described by a model calculation with a broadened \\rho spectral function for M_ee<1.1 GeV/c^2. The integrated dielectron excess yield at sqrt{s_NN} = 19.6 GeV for 0.4<M_ee<0.75 GeV/c^2, normalized to the charged particle multiplicity at mid-rapidity, has a value similar to that in In+In collisions at sqrt{s_NN} = 17.3 GeV. For sqrt{s_NN} = 200 GeV, the normalized excess yield in central collisions is higher than that at sqrt{s_NN} = 17.3 GeV and increases from peripheral to central collisions. These measurements indicate that the lifetime of the hot, dense medium created in central Au+Au collisions at sqrt{s_NN} = 200 GeV is longer than those in peripheral collisions and at lower energies.
