We calculate the thermal photon transverse momentum spectra and elliptic flow in √(s_NN) = 200 GeV Au+Au collisions at RHIC and in √(s_NN) = 2.76 TeV Pb+Pb collisions at the LHC, using an ideal-hydrodynamical framework which is constrained by the measured hadron spectra at RHIC and LHC. The sensitivity of the results to the QCD-matter equation of state and to the photon emission rates is studied, and the photon v_2 is discussed in the light of the photonic p_T spectrum measured by the PHENIXdoi:10.1103/physrevc.84.064903 fatcat:bgvitu5qkfhv3jdcyxpcm2ynxe
