Physics motivations

Physics motivations

The goal of RHIC is to create QGP – a thermalized partons state

RHIC AA + pp + dAu results:Hard-scatterings are initially present;

Suppression phenomena in central Au+Au

are due to final-state interactions.

(consistent with jet quenching)

…through interactions with what medium?

  • Study how the energy is distributed.

  • Investigate equilibration between the energy and the surrounding medium.

  • Measure the amount of energy loss.

Reconstructing associated particles

  • Select a leading particle 4<pT<6 GeV/c, |h|<0.75.

  • Associate all other particles (0.15<pT<4 GeV/c, |h|<1.1) with the leading particle. Form Df,Dh correlation.

  • Background from mix- events. v2 modulation on background. Normalize in 0.9<|Df|<1.3.

  • Efficiency corrections are applied to associated particles.

  • Take difference and normalize per trigger.

we are selecting a larger energy jet

Energy loss and thermalization

STAR Preliminary

  • Away side <pT> decreases with centrality.

  • Away side collimated region is harder in pp and peripheral AA – jet property. But the collimated region is softer in central AA! Effect appears gradually with centrality.

  • Away side <pT> is still larger than that from the inclusive result.

Towards thermalization in more central collisions!

Broadened distribution and thermalization

e.g. a thermal fluctuated large pT particle (or a mono-jet) would produce an away side excess due to momentum conservation.

  • the final state away excess has a similar shape to a stat. distr. from momentum conservation.

  • near side is mostly a jet, and initially no mono-jet at mid-rapidity.

No punch-through for 6 < pTtrig < 10 GeV/c.

  • the away side excess is approaching equilibration with the medium, consistent with the pT spectra results.

Summary and open questions

Summary and Open Questions

  • Statistical reconstruction of jets in pp and AA collisions.

  • Same pT leading particles come from larger initial energy in central AA than in pp.

  • Near side:overall increase in multiplicity.

  • Away side:increase in multiplicity as well as softening in pT.

  • Away side: towards thermalization in more central collisions.

  • How does jet lose energy? In what medium?How & to what extent are they equilibrated with the medium?

    Statistical jet reconstruction opens up opportunities to answer these questions experimentally.

What we know from previous measurements…

Suppression phenomena in central Au+Au are due to final-state interactions. Parton-parton hard-scatterings are initially present.

pT > 4 GeV/c region is mainly from jet fragmentation.
