Description

Under the assumption that a quark-gluon plasma droplet is produced in $p$ + A collisions, $\gamma$-triggered hadron spectra [1,2] are studied within a next-to-leading-order perturbative QCD parton model with the medium-modified parton fragmentation functions in $p$ + Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=5.02$ TeV. The initial conditions and space-time evolution of the small system of hot and dense medium is simulated by superSONIC hydrodynamic model [3] and parton energy loss in such a medium is described by the high-twist (HT) approach [4]. The scaled jet transport coefficient $\hat{q}/T^3$ in this HT approach is extracted from single hadron in central A + A collisions because its values from single and dihadron suppressions are similar [5]. Numerical results show that $\gamma$-hadron spectra for $p_T^\gamma=12-40$ GeV/$c$ in this scenario are suppressed by 10% $\sim$ 20% in the most central 0 - 10% $p$ + Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=5.02$ TeV. The suppression becomes weaker with higher transverse momentum of the triggered-$\gamma$. As a comparison, $\gamma$-hadron suppression in Pb + Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{\rm NN}}=2.76$ and 5.02 TeV is also predicted.
