QCD undergoes a deconfining transition at high temperature to a "quark-gluon plasma" phase
where hadrons may become unbound. In this work, meson correlation functions at non-zero mo-
mentum are studied both in the confined and plasma phases using the Maximum Entropy Method.
In particular, both the longitudinal and transverse modes of the vector correlation functions are
considered. Only in the case of light quarks in the plasma phase, we find that both longitudinal
and transverse spectral functions have a non-zero intercept at zero energy.
