Content

Heavy ion collisions at high energies are used to study QCD at high temperatures. These high temperatures allow for the formation of a new state of matter called quark-gluon plasma (QGP) where the quarks and gluons inside of the nuclei are no longer confined. Jets are a useful probe of this medium since partons inside the jet are expected to lose energy in interactions with the strongly interacting matter, a phenomena called jet quenching. Many measurements of jet quenching have been performed at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). In these measurements energy loss is quantified through many observables that each probe different mechanisms of energy loss. This talk will discuss recent measurements of jet quenching at RHIC and the LHC, where higher energies and luminosities have allowed for more precise measurements that better constrain models of energy loss and provide insight into the properties of the medium.
