A jet is a narrow cone of hadrons and other particles produced by the
hadronization of a quark or gluon in a particle physics or heavy ion
experiment. Because of QCD confinement, particles carrying a color charge,
such as quarks, cannot exist in free form. Therefore they fragment into
hadrons before they can be directly detected, becoming jets. These jets
must be measured in a particle detector and studied in order to determine
the properties of the original quark. (Wikipedia)
