Photons from strange-quark annihilation in a quark-gluon plasma

  • We compute the energy spectrum of photons which originate from the quark-annihilation process ss¯→γg in quark-gluon plasma. The spectrum peaks at an energy Eγmax∼2ms∼400 MeV in the rest frame of the plasma. We expect one photon from the above process in the energy range of 2ms±0.25ms per hundred quark-gluon plasmas of a size R=3 fm and a lifetime τ=6 fm/c formed in nuclear collisions.
