ME/HE Seminar: "Probing QCD Matter at Extremely High Temperatures in ATLAS: Jet Measurements in p+p, p+Pb and Pb+Pb Collisions at 5 TeV"

Speaker Anne Sickles, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Date: 2/20/2017
Time: 1 p.m.

464 Loomis

Event Contact: Angi Meharry


Event Type: Seminar/Symposium

Collisions between two lead nuclei at the Large Hadron Collider produce extremely high temperature QCD matter which is best described as consisting of deconfined quarks and gluons.  A powerful tool to understand this matter is to use the high momentum quarks and gluons generated in hard scattering processes in the earliest stages of the nuclear collision as probes of the matter at later times.  The idea is to use modifications to the jet rates and properties induced by the scattering of the probes off the constituents of the matter to infer the nature of the interactions and constrain the properties of the matter.  This talk will describe the new measurements at 5 TeV collision energy of jets and their properties in the ATLAS detector in lead-lead collisions as well proton-proton and proton-lead collisions which provide a baseline for the lead-lead measurements.
