Electromagnetic radiation from QGP with chromo-magnetic monopoles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We consider the radiation of photons from quarks scattering on color-magnetic monopoles in the Quark-Gluon Plasma. The calculation is performed in the classical, non-relativistic approximation and results are compared to photon emission from Coulomb scattering of quarks, known to provide a significant contribution to the photon emission rates from the QGP. The present study is a first step towards understanding whether this scattering process can give a sizable contribution to dilepton production in heavy-ion collisions.
