Charged particle transverse momentum spectra in $pp$ collisions at $s = 0.9$ and 7 TeV

Using a combination of xT scaling and direct interpolation at fixed pT, a reference transverse momentum spectrum at s √ =2.76 s=2.76 TeV is constructed, which can be used for studying high-pT particle suppression in the dense QCD medium produced in heavy-ion collisions at that centre-of-mass energy.

Abstract

The charged particle transverse momentum (pT) spectra are presented for pp collisions at s √ =0.9 s=0.9 and 7 TeV. The data samples were collected with the CMS detector at the LHC and correspond to integrated luminosities of 231 μb−1 and 2.96 pb−1, respectively. Calorimeter-based high-transverse-energy triggers are employed to enhance the statistical reach of the high-pT measurements. The results are compared with leading and next-to-leading order QCD and with an empirical scaling of measurements at different collision energies using the scaling variable x T ≡2p T /s √ xT≡2pT/s over the pT range up to 200 GeV/c. Using a combination of xT scaling and direct interpolation at fixed pT, a reference transverse momentum spectrum at s √ =2.76 s=2.76 TeV is constructed, which can be used for studying high-pT particle suppression in the dense QCD medium produced in heavy-ion collisions at that centre-of-mass energy.
