Graduate Seminar, Nov. 29th

Speaker: Oleksandr Kovalenko

Title: Thermal photons as the signature of Quark Gluon Plasma and its thermometer.

Abstract: Direct photon spectrum is a probe to study the thermal properties of the QGP fireball created in ultra relativistic heavy-ion collisions.
A scheme of extracting the direct photon signal from the data will be presented. The current results on thermal photons emitted in heavy ion collisions will be reviewed.
