Abstract (data abstract)
Yields, correlation shapes, and mean transverse momenta pT of charged particles associated with intermediate to high-pT trigger particles (2.5 < pT < 10 GeV/c) in d+Au and Au+Au collisions at sqrt(sNN) = 200 GeV are presented. For associated particles at higher pT > 2.5 GeV\c, narrow correlation peaks are seen in d+Au and Au+Au, indicating that the main production mechanism is jet fragmentation. At lower associated particle pT < 2 GeV/c, a large enhancement of the near- (dphi ~ 0) and away-side (dphi ~ pi) associated yields is found, together with a strong broadening of the away-side azimuthal distributions in Au+Au collisions compared to d+Au measurements, suggesting that other particle production mechanisms play a role. This is further supported by the observed significant softening of the away-side associated particle yield distribution at dphi ~ pi in central Au+Au collisions.
