Description

Two particle jet correlations, especially those involving prompt photons remain an important probe of jet quenching, complementary to full jet reconstruction measurements, especially at the lowest jet energies accessible in relativistic heavy ion collisions. For gamma-jet processes, this is due to the fact that the photon can escape unbiased by the geometry of the quenching fireball, and that the processes producing prompt photons together with jets, can tag specific flavor possibilities for the accompanying jets, such as samples of dominantly quark jets. Such measurements will continue to play an important role in the field as we search for the point where quenching effects turn off as we reduce the size of the fireball geometry going to toward smaller system sizes. We will review the latest developments in these studies at RHIC and LHC.
