Description:ALICE - A Large Ion Collider Experiment, at the Large Hadron Collider
Abstract:ALICE is the acronym for A Large Ion Collider Experiment, the experiment at the Large Hadron Collider devoted to the physics of | ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) is a heavy-ion detector designed to study the physics of strongly interacting matter at extreme energy densities, where a phase of matter called quark-gluon plasma forms. The ALICE collaboration uses the 10,000-tons ALICE detector – 26 m long, 16 m high, and 16 m wide – to study quark-gluon plasma. The detector sits in a vast cavern 56 m below ground close to the village of St Genis-Pouilly in France, receiving beams from the LHC. As of today, the ALICE Collaboration counts 1,550 members from 151 institutes of 37 countries.In this demonstrative application, you are able to select some ALICE datasets and run some analyses of the transverse momentum of charged particles in Pb-Pb collisions.
