Esperimento ALICE

ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment), one of the experiment located at the Large Hadron Collider, is optimized for the study of ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions. Under the extreme conditions of energy density and temperature created in nuclear collisions in the laboratory, a primordial state of matter, called quark-gluon plasma, is formed, the same our universe is thought to have been in the first few millionths of a second after the Big Bang. Studying this state will allow us to shed light on questions about nuclear matter and quark and gluon confinement.

The Pavia group, in collaboration with the Brescia one, works on:

  • Data analysis: charmed meson measurements in proton-proton collisions; W and Z vector boson measurements in lead-lead collisions.
  • GRID: European coordination of analysis processes.
    Detectors: installation, quality control and data taking preparation for the pixel tracker (Inner Tracking System).
