Abstract
First measurements of dihadron correlationsfor charged particles are presented for central PbPb collisions at a nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy of 2.76TeV over a broad range in relative pseudorapidity (∆η) and the full range of relative azimuthal angle (∆ϕ). The data were collected with the CMS detector, at the LHC. A broadening of the away-side (∆ϕ ≈ π) azimuthal correlation is observed at all ∆η, as compared to the measurements in pp collisions. Furthermore, long-range dihadron correlations in ∆η are observed for particles with similar ϕ values. This phenomenon, also known as the ridge, persists up to at least |∆η| = 4. For particles with transverse momenta (p T) of2-4 GeV/c, the ridge is found to be most prominent when these particles are correlated with particles of p T = 2-6 GeV/c, and to be much reduced when paired with particles of p T = 10-12 GeV/c.
