This study shows a new effect caused by jet in heavy ion collision. That is high energy particle will heat and disorder the equilibration process of the region through which it passes. The observable signals of this effect are predicted by thermal model calculation at RHIC energy. The expectation is consistent with preliminary experiment data. (c) 2007 Elsevier B.V.
