LHC Seminar

Systematic studies of parton-quark gluon plasma interactions with ATLAS

by Qipeng Hu (Lawrence Livermore Nat. Laboratory (US))


Jet quenching, in which partons lose energy through interactions with a colour-charged medium, is one of the major signatures of quark-gluon plasma (QGP) formation in relativistic heavy-ion collisions. The seminar presents recent jet quenching measurements based on Run-2 data collected with the ATLAS detector. Using the results of inclusive jet production as a baseline, these new studies systematically explore how jet quenching depends on the mass and colour charge of the initiating parton, the parton shower’s path-length in the QGP medium, and the jet substructure.
