We study, in a pQCD calculation augmented by nuclear effects, the jet energy loss needed to reproduce the p0 spectra in Au+Au collisions at large pT , measured by PHENIX at RHIC. The transverse width of the parton momentum distributions (intrinsic kT ) is used phenomenologically to obtain a reliable baseline pp result. Jet quenching is applied to the nuclear spectra (including shadowing and multiscattering) to fit the data.
