Special Nuclear Chemistry/Nuclear Physics Seminar

"Probing the Quark Gluon Plasma at RHIC with Jets"

Presented by Dr. Jiangyong Jia, Columbia University

Thursday, October 13, 2005, 3:30 pm — Room 300, Bldg. 555

A novel, hot and dense matter has been created in relativistic heavy ion collisions at Brookhaven National Laboratory. It's energy density and temperature are found to exceed the hadron to quark-gluon plasma phase transition values predicted by lattice QCD calculations. Significant progress has been made in understanding the properties of this matter in the past five years. I will show results from experiments at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, focusing on the remarkable properties revealed by high transverse momentum hadrons and back to back hadron pairs.
