Jet Results in pp and Pb-Pb Collisions at ALICE    [PDF]

Oliver Busch for the ALICE collaboration
We report results on jet production in pp and Pb-Pb collisions at the LHC from the ALICE collaboration. The jet cross section in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$=2.76 TeV is presented, as well as the charged particle jet production cross section and measurements of the jet fragmentation and jet shape in pp collisions at $\sqrt{s}$=7 TeV. NLO pQCD calculations and simulations from MC event generators agree well with the data. Measurements of jets with a resolution parameter $R$=0.2 in Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s}_{NN}$=2.76 TeV show a strong, momentum dependent suppression in central events with respect to pp collisions. The centrality dependence of the suppression of charged particle jets relative to peripheral events is presented. The ratio of jet spectra with $R$=0.2 and $R$=0.3 is found to be similar in pp and Pb-Pb events. The analysis of the semi-inclusive distribution of charged particle jets recoiling from a high-$p_{\rm T}$ trigger hadron allows an unbiased measurement of the jet structure for larger cone radii.
