Jets initiating from a B-quark (B-jet) are sensitive to the collisional energy loss of the quark when traversing through Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP). Among the light jet background, the rare B-jets can be identified by utilizing some characteristic B-hadron decay properties, such as its long lifetime and semi-leptonic decay modes. With the proposed sPHENIX detector at RHIC, we study a variety of B-Jet tagging algorithms, including the track impact parameter method, secondary vertex method and the lepton tagging method. The algorithm optimization and their performance projection will be discussed based on comprehensive detector and physics simulations.
