Abstract

The azimuthal anisotropy of charged particles in Pb-Pb collisions at √sNN=2.76  TeV is measured with the CMS detector at the LHC over an extended transverse momentum (pT) range up to approximately 60  GeV/c. The data cover both the low-pT region associated with hydrodynamic flow phenomena and the high-pT region where the anisotropies may reflect the path-length dependence of parton energy loss in the created medium. The anisotropy parameter (v2) of the particles is extracted by correlating charged tracks with respect to the event-plane reconstructed by using the energy deposited in forward-angle calorimeters. For the six bins of collision centrality studied, spanning the range of 0–60% most-central events, the observed v2 values are found to first increase with pT, reaching a maximum around pT=3  GeV/c, and then to gradually decrease to almost zero, with the decline persisting up to at least pT=40  GeV/c over the full centrality range measured.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
