Characterizing quark gluon plasma by thermal photons and lepton pairs    [PDF]

Sukanya Mitra, Payal Mohanty, Sabyasachi Ghosh, Sourav Sarkar, Jan-e Alam
The photon spectra measured by the ALICE collaboration in Pb+Pb collisions at Large Hadron Collider (LHC) energies has been analyzed with a view of extracting the properties of thermal system formed in these collisions. The results of the analysis are compared with the previously studied spectra measured at Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) and Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) energies. The thermal dilepton spectra from the Pb+Pb collision at LHC energy has been predicted for the initial conditions constrained by the thermal photon spectra at the same collision conditions. The slope of the photon has been used to estimate the rise in the effective degeneracy with the charged particle multiplicity of the system. The slopes of the lepton pair spectra for different invariant mass windows have been used to conjecture the average radial flow velocity of the high temperature phase.
