Description

We present results of a study of charged particle jet properties in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV using the ALICE detector. Jets are reconstructed using charged tracks at mid-rapidity with the anti-$\rm k_{t}$ [1] jet finding algorithm from FastJet. We will discuss the transverse momentum dependence of three jet properties: charged particle multiplicity, jet size, and radial distribution of transverse momentum about the jet direction for jets in the $\rm p_{t}$ range from 20 to 100 GeV/c. The results are compared with available model predictions. These measurements in $pp$ collisions will form the baseline for similar measurements in the more complex environment of A+A collisions.
