Direct-photon production in heavy-ion collisions from SPS to RHIC energies

Experimental Physics

Abstract.

Direct photons are an important tool for the detection of the quark-gluon plasma in ultra-relativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions. Direct-photon measurements were made in Pb + Pb collisions at \(\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}} = 17.2\) GeV and in Au + Au collisions at \(\sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}} = 200\) GeV. These results are reviewed and compared with model calculations.
