Probing nuclear parton densities and parton energy loss processes through photon + heavy-quark jet production in p-A and A-A collisions
Proceedings of XXIst International Europhysics Conference on High Energy Physics — PoS(EPS-HEP2011)
We show that the associated production of a prompt photon and a heavy-quark jet (charm or bottom) is a versatile process that provides us with the opportunity to study the structure of the proton and the nucleus (in proton-nucleus (p-A) collisions) as well as the mechanisms of heavy quark energy loss (in nucleus-nucleus (A-A) collisions). Future p-A measurements of this process at the LHC should allow one to disentangle the various nPDF sets currently available. In heavyion collisions, thedoi:10.22323/1.134.0120 fatcat:v4gp75r7dfanfk4fmcevlrvtl4
