    ABSTRACT: We have studied the dissociation phenomenon of 1p states (χ c and χ b) of the charmonium and bottomonium spectra in a hot QCD medium. This study employed a medium modified heavy quark potential encoding the medium effects in the dielectric function to the full Cornell potential. The medium modified potential has a quite different form in the sense that it has a long range Coulomb tail in addition to the usual Yukawa term even above the deconfinement temperature. We further study the flavor dependence of their binding energies and explore the nature of dissociation by employing the perturbative, non-perturbative, and the lattice parametrized form of the Debye masses in the medium-modified po-tential. Interestingly, perturbative result of the Debye mass predicts the dissociation temperatures closer to the results obtained in lattice correlator studies whereas the lattice parametrized form of the Debye masses gives the results closer to the current theoretical works based on potential studies.

    ABSTRACT: We have developed an equation of state for strongly interacting quark-gluon plasma (QGP) in the framework of strongly coupled plasma with appropriate modifications to take account of color and flavor degrees of freedom and the interactions among themselves. For this purpose we used the effective potential to improve the plasma parameter (Γ) by correcting the full Cornell potential with a dielectric function embodying the effects of the deconfined medium and not its Coulomb part alone and obtain the equation of state in terms of Γ. Our results on thermodynamic observables viz. pressure, energy density, speed of sound etc. nicely fit to the results of lattice equation of state for gluon, massless as well massive flavored plasma. We have then employed our equation of state to estimate the quarkonium suppression in an expanding QGP produced in the relativistic heavy-ion collisions. We have found that our predictions matches with the recent PHENIX data on the centrality dependence of J/ψ suppression in Au+Au collisions at BNL RHIC within the limit of other uncertainties. We have also predicted for the ϒ suppression in Pb+Pb collisions at LHC energy which could be tested in the ALICE experiments at CERN LHC.

    ABSTRACT: Following a recent work on equation of state for strongly interacting quark-gluon plasma [J. Phys. G: Nucl. Part. Phys. 32, 993 (2006)], we revisited the equation of state by incorporating the non-perturbative effects in the deconfined plasma phase. Our results on thermodynamic observables viz. pressure, energy density, speed of sound etc. nicely fit with the lattice equation of state for gluon, massless and as well massive flavored plasma. Motivated by this agreement with lattice results, we have employed our equation of state to estimate the quarkonium suppression in an expanding, dissipative strongly interacting QGP produced in relativistic heavy-ion collisions and our prediction matches exactly with the recent PHENIX data on the centrality dependence of $J/\psi$ suppression in Au+Au collisions at BNL RHIC. We have also predicted for the $\Upsilon$ suppression in Pb+Pb collisions at LHC energy which could be tested in the ALICE experiments at CERN LHC.

    ABSTRACT: We study the survival of charmonium states in a strongly-coupled quark-gluon plasma in the presence of dissipative forces. We consider first-order dissipative corrections to the plasma equation of motion in the Bjorken boost-invariant expansion with a strongly-coupled equation of state for QGP and study the survival of these states with the dissociation temperatures obtained by correcting the full Cornell potential not its Coulomb part alone with a dielectric function encoding the effects of deconfined medium. We further explore the sensitivity of prompt and sequential suppression of these states to the shear viscosity-to-entropy density ratio, $\eta/s$ from perturbative QCD and AdS/CFT predictions. Our results show excellent agreement with the recent experimental results at RHIC. Comment: 15 double sided pages, 8 figures, 5 tables

    ABSTRACT: We extend the analysis of a very recent work (Phys. Rev. {\bf C 80}, 025210 (2009)) to study the dissociation phenomenon of 1p states of the charmonium and bottomonium spectra ($\chi_c$ and $\chi_b$) in a hot QCD medium. This study employed a medium modified heavy quark potential which is obtained by incorporating both perturbative and non-perturbative medium effects encoded in the dielectric function to the full Cornell potential. The medium modified potential has a quite different form (a long range Coulomb tail in addition to the usual Yukawa term) compared to the usual picture of Debye screening. We further study the flavor dependence of their binding energies and dissociation temperatures by employing the perturbative, non-perturbative, and the lattice parametrized form of the Debye masses. These results are consistent with the predictions of the current theoretical works. Comment: 7 pages, 2 figures, 3 tables, two column

    ABSTRACT: We have studied the dissociation of heavy quarkonium states in a hot QCD medium by investigating the medium modifications to a heavy quark potential. Our model shows that in-medium modification causes the screening of the charge in contrast to the screening of the range of the potential. We have then employed the medium-modified potential to estimate the dissociation pattern of the charmonium and bottomonium states and also explore how the pattern changes as we go from the perturbative to nonperturbative domain in the Debye mass. The results are in good agreement with the other current theoretical works both from the spectral function analysis and the potential model study.

    ABSTRACT: At high temperatures, strongly interacting matter becomes a plasma of deconfined quarks and gluons. In statistical QCD, deconfinement and the properties of the resulting quark-gluon plasma can be investigated by studying the in-medium behaviour of heavy quark bound states. In high energy nuclear interactions, quarkonia probe different aspects of the medium formed in the collision. So, we first reviewed the fate of quarkonia in the different stages of the (dynamical) system produced at the collision. We have then presented our present work on the dissociation of the heavy quarkonium states in a hot QCD medium by investigating the medium modifications to heavy quark potential. In contrast to the usual screening picture, interestingly our theory gives rise the screening of the charge, not the range of the potential.

    ABSTRACT: A new class of Erbium doped glasses with compositions xNa2O - (60-x)PbCl2 - 40P2O5 (x=0, 10, 20 and 30) were fabricated and characterized for optical properties. Absorption spectra were analyzed for important Judd-Ofelt parameters from the integrated intensities of various Er3+ glass absorption bands. Photoluminescence (PL) and its decay behavior studies were carried out for the transition 4I13/2 -> 4I15/2. A systematic correlation between the Judd-Ofelt parameter {omega}2 and the covalent nature of the glass matrix was observed, due to increased role of bridging oxygens in the glass network. The PL broadness and life times of 4I13/2_> 4I15/2 transition were typically in the range of 40-60nm and 2.13-2.5ms respectively. These glasses broadly showed high transparency, high refractive index, shorter life times and, most importantly, these glasses were found to be capable of being doped with larger concentrations of Er3+ (up to 4 wt%). Increase of Er3+ concentration resulted in the increase in PL line-widths with no significant effect of concentration quenching, indicating that these glasses are suitable for optical fibre/waveguide amplifiers.
