© 2016.We numerically simulate classical falling string configurations in AdS with non-trivial transverse dynamics. These strings develop kink-like structures which, in the dual theory, can be interpreted as the propagation of hard gluons produced in association with a quark-antiquark pair in a strongly coupled plasma. We observe the appearance of two physically distinct regimes of the in-plasma dynamics depending on whether the medium is able to resolve the transverse structure of the string prior to its total quench. From these regimes we extract the transverse resolution angle of the strongly coupled SYM plasma and confront it with perturbative results.
