Abstract

The first study of the shapes of jets arising from bottom (b) quarks in heavy ion collisions is presented. Jet shapes are studied using charged hadron constituents as a function of their radial distance from the jet axis. Lead-lead (PbPb) collision data at a nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy of root s(NN)= 5.02 TeV were recorded by the CMS detector at the LHC, with an integrated luminosity of 1.69nb(-1). Compared to proton-proton collisions, aredistribution of the energy inbjets to larger distances from the jet axis is observed in PbPb collisions. This medium-induced redistribution is found to be substantially larger forbjets than for inclusive jets. (c) 2023 The Author(s). Published by Elsevier B.V.
