Diagnostics of hot dense matter produced in relativistic heavy ion collisions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We study, in a pQCD calculation augmented by nuclear effects, the jet energy loss needed to reproduce the measured π0 spectra in Au + Au collisions at large pT, measured by PHENIX at RHIC at √s = 200 AGeV. Averaged energy loss obtained in the GLV formalism is applied in our recent calculation based on NLO pQCD (including shadowing and multiscattering). The method of jet tomography is capable to measure the opacity of the produced hot dense matter at RHIC energy in heavy ion collisions.
