Studying Hot QCD with LHC Jets
Salur (Rutgers University)
The phase diagram of QCD matter has been studied
with relativistic heavy ion collisions. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN
has delivered heavy ion collisions (Pb+Pb) along with
reference data of pp and p+Pb
collisions since 2010. With its
unprecedented reach in energy, LHC explores new regions of the phase diagram of
Quantum Chromo Dynamics (QCD) that can resolve fundamental questions regarding
quark confinement, such as ``What determines the key features of QCD?" and
"How does the hot QCD respond to jet energy loss?Ó.
At Rutgers, we have performed multiple, complementary jet measurements at LHC
using the CMS detector to answer these questions. This talk will present
an overview of our experimental results that reveal detailed
properties of the hot QCD matter.
