Jet quenching from soft QCD scattering in the quark-gluon plasma
2006 (English)In: Physics Letters B, Vol. 637, no 3, 179-184 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We show that partons traversing a quark-gluon plasma can lose substantial amounts of energy also by scatterings, and not only through medium-induced radiation as mainly considered previously. Results from Monte Carlo simulations of soft interactions of partons, emerging from a hard scattering, through multiple elastic scatterings on gluons in an expanding relativistic plasma show a sizeable jet quenching which can account for a substantial part of the effect observed in RHIC data.
