Description

We investigate the possibility of enhanced jet quenching in the vicinity of the critical temperature similar to the scenario proposed by Liao and Shuryak [PRL 102, 202302(2009)]. We discuss the consequences of the fact that the "shells" of such enhanced, critical quenching grow thinner as a function of the center-of-mass energy sqrt(s) of the collision. A systematic scan of jet quenching as a function of sqrt(s) can put constraints on such critical enhancement scenarios. Lastly we check existing constraints by comparing results from a numerical calculation using critical enhancement against high transverse momentum data from RHIC and LHC.
