Measurement of jet \pT{} spectra in Pb--Pb collisions at
$\snn=2.76~\mathrm{TeV}$ with the ALICE detector at the LHC

Salvatore Aiola, for the ALICE Collaboration
Reconstruction of jets in high-energy heavy-ion collisions is challenging due to the large and fluctuating background coming from the underlying event. We report results on full jet reconstruction, obtained from data collected in 2011 by the ALICE detector at LHC for {Pb--Pb} collisions at $\snn=2.76$ TeV. The analysis makes use of the tracking system and the electromagnetic calorimeter. Signal jets, which come from hard scattered partons, are reconstructed using the \antikt{} jet finder algorithm. The average background is subtracted on a jet-by-jet basis to reduce the contribution to the jet reconstructed energy coming from the underlying event. The jet spectrum is corrected to account for fluctuations in the background momentum density and detector effects through unfolding.
