Photon radiation from heavy-ion collisions in the sNN=19−200GeV regime

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We present calculations of prompt and thermal photon production in Au-Au collisions at sNN=19−200GeV. We discuss features of the spacetime profile of the plasma relevant for electromagnetic emission. We highlight how the suppression of prompt photon production at low sNN can provide a window to measure thermal photons in low collision energies.
