Centrality and pseudorapidity dependence of the transverse energy density in pPb collisions at ?sNN=5.02 TeV

Abstract: The almost hermetic coverage of the CMS detector is used to measure the distribution of transverse energy,ET, over 13.2 units of pseudorapidity, ?, for pPb collisions at a center-of-mass energy per nucleon pair of ?sNN =5.02 TeV. The huge angular acceptance exploits the fact that the CASTOR calorimeter at ?6.6 ? ?5.2 is effectively present on both sides of the colliding system because of a switch in the proton-going and lead-going beam directions. This wide acceptance enables the study of correlations between well-separated angular regions and makes the measurement a particularly powerful test of event generators. For minimum bias pPb collisions the maximum value of dET/d? is 22 GeV, which implies an ET per participant nucleon pair comparable to that of peripheral PbPb collisions at ?sNN = 2.76 TeV. The increase of dET/d? with centrality is much stronger for the lead-going side than for the proton-going side. The ? dependence of dET/d? is sensitive to the ? range in which the centrality variable is defined. Several modern generators are compared to these results but none is able to capture all aspects of the ? and centrality dependence of the data and the correlations observed between different ? regions.
