Description

An overview of the most recent results on jet quenching physics obtained using PbPb collision data collected with the CMS experiment at 2.76 TeV will be presented. These measurements make use of many different observables, including momentum imbalance of dijet and photon-jet events, nuclear modification factor RAA, as well as jet fragmentation functions, jet shapes, and flavor dependence of jet quenching. All these measurements in PbPb collisions will be presented and compared with observations in 2.76 TeV pp collisions to probe for distortions from energy loss in the hot and dense medium. Since many of these observables have low correlation to one-another they serve as useful independent confirmations of the quenching properties.
