    Abstract

    The measurement of transverse momentum spectra of charged hadrons in d + Au and Au + Au collisions was discussed. It was found that the nuclear modification factor of Au + Au collisions exhibited a strong suppression. The nuclear modification factor for d + Au exhibited an enhancement of the high pT suppression.
