Quark and Gluon jet identification in pp collisions at LHC energies

Research output: Conference article


With increasing luminosities at LHC, the jet-studies become more accessible. With rising statistics and excellent detector capabilities, possibility emerges to identify jets as quarks or gluons to study and understand how differences in their fragmentation properties influence final particle spectra and thus understand the underlying processes of particle formation. We propose a method to separate jets into quark-like and gluon-like samples which can be performed directly on data without the necessity to rely on Monte-Carlo. We study the fragmentation of the selected jets and compare to reference samples of quarks and gluons.
