# The effect of magnetic field on jet quenching parameter

The European Physical Journal C, Jun 2018

Using AdS/CFT correspondence, we investigate the effect of a constant magnetic field on the jet quenching parameter in strongly-coupled $${{\mathcal {N}}}=4$$ SYM plasma. We analyze the jet moving parallel and transverse to the magnetic field, respectively. For both cases, it is found that the jet quenching parameter is generally enhanced in the presence of a magnetic field, consistently with earlier findings.
