Jet energy resolution in proton-proton collisions at √ s = 7 TeV recorded in 2010 with the ATLAS detector

The ATLAS Collaboration

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The measurement of the jet energy resolution is presented using data recorded with the ATLAS detector in proton-proton collisions at √ s = 7 TeV. The sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 35 pb−1. Jets are reconstructed from energy deposits measured by the calorimeters and calibrated using different jet calibration schemes. The jet energy resolution is measured with two different in situ methods which are found to be in agreement within uncertainties. The total uncertainties on these measurements range from 20 % to 10 % for jets within |y| < 2.8 and with transverse momenta increasing from 30 GeV to 500 GeV. Overall, the Monte Carlo simulation of the jet energy resolution agrees with the data within 10 %.
