Tomography of the "little" big bang - Probing the QGP with Jets

Joern Putchske, Wayne State University
Tuesday, October 8, 1:45 PM - NSCL/HEP Joint Seminar
Biomedical & Physical Sciences Bldg., Rm. 1400

I will discuss recent LHC and RHIC jet measurements in the context of QGP (Quark-Gluon-Plasma) tomography. In particular jets, produced at very early times, can be used analogous to the well known "Rutherford Scattering" to learn more about the hot and dense medium created in heavy-ion collisions with focus on the LHC results.
