ALICE Experiment

The High Energy Heavy Ion group at the Niels Bohr Institute studies collisions between atomic nuclei which have been accelerated to ultrarelativistic energies.

The aim of such studies is to explore and understand the properties of matter at extreme temperatures (~1012 degrees) and densities (>10 times nuclear matter density).

In particular, we are interested in characterizing the transition from normal hadronic matter to the Quark-Gluon Plasma, a state of matter consisting of deconfined quarks and gluons.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ALICE

The ALICE Collaboration has built a dedicated detector to exploit the unique physics potential of nucleus-nucleus collisions at LHC energies. Our aim is to study the physics of strongly interacting matter at the highest energy densities reached so far in the laboratory.

Alice Detector
The ALICE detector in CERN, 2013.

In such condition, an extreme phase of matter - called the quark-gluon plasma - is formed. Our universe is thought to have been in such a primordial state for the first few millionths of a second after the Big Bang.

This group participates in the ALICE experiment at the Large Hadron Collider where it is responsible for a laser calibration system for the Time Projection Chamber and for the Forward Multiplicity Detector.
