Abstract

Recent RHIC results on pion production in AuAu collision at √ s = 130 and 200 AGeV display a strong suppression effect at high pT . This suppression can be connected to final state effects, namely jet energy loss induced by the produced dense colored matter. Applying our pQCD-based parton model we perform a quantitative analysis of the measured suppression pattern and determine the opacity of the produced deconfined matter. PACS: 12.38.Mh Quark-gluon plasma in quantum chromodynamics – 24.85+p Quarks, gluons, and QCD in nuclei and nuclear processes – 25.75-q Relativistic heavy-ion collisions.
