Nuclear Physics Seminar

"Precision Jet Physics to Probe Strong Dynamics"

Presented by Dr. Daekyoung Kang, Los Alamos National Laboratory

Tuesday, February 16, 2016, 11:00 am — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Jets produced in the high energy collision of quarks and gluons at colliders are bunches of collimated particles traveling along the same direction. Jet productions are extensively studied in various colliders in search for new physics beyond the standard model and as a probe of new state of matter like QGP. In this talk, I will discuss jet study at a high precision as a new tool to probe strong dynamics in electron-proton collider. As an example, I will show the new tool can be used to determine the strong coupling constant and to improve our understanding of nuclear structure such as a parton distribution function of proton. With new level of precision not previously available for jets, the jet physics will provide one of milestones at the early stage of future Electron-Ion collider.
