    Title: Suppression of high-pT heavy-flavour particles in Pb-Pb collisions at the LHC, measured with the ALICE detector
    Author: Dainese, Andrea
    Subject: Nuclear Experiment
    Description: The ALICE experiment studies nucleus-nucleus collisions at the LHC in order to investigate the properties of QCD matter at extreme energy densities. The measurement of open charm and open beauty production allows one to probe the mechanisms of heavy-quark propagation, energy loss and hadronization in the hot and dense medium formed in high-energy nucleus-nucleus collisions. In particular, in-medium energy loss is predicted to be different for massless partons (light quarks and gluons) and heavy quarks at moderate momentum. The ALICE apparatus allows us to measure open heavy-flavour particles in several decay channels and with a wide phase-space coverage. We present the results on the nuclear modification factors for heavy-flavour particle production in Pb-Pb collisions at sqrtsNN=2.76 TeV. Using proton-proton and lead-lead collision samples at sqrts=2.76 and 7 TeV and at sqrtsNN=2.76 TeV, respectively, nuclear modification factors R_AA(pT) were measured for D mesons at central rapidity (via displaced decay vertex reconstruction), and for electrons and muons from heavy-flavour decays, at central and forward rapidity, respectively. A large suppression is observed, by a factor 2.5-4 in central Pb--Pb collisions with respect to the pp reference, in the high-pT region, indicating a strong in-medium energy loss of heavy quarks.

    Title: First ALICE results from heavy-ion collisions at the LHC
    Author: Dainese, Andrea
    Subject: Nuclear Experiment
    Description: The ALICE detector recorded Pb-Pb collisions at sqrtsNN = 2.76 TeV at the LHC in November-December 2010. We present the results of the measurements that provide a first characterization of the hot and dense state of strongly-interacting matter produced in heavy-ion collisions at these energies. In particular, we describe the measurements of the particle multiplicity, collective flow, Bose-Einstein correlations, high-momentum suppression, and their dependence on the collision centrality. These observables are related to the energy density, the size, the viscosity, and the opacity of the system. Finally, we give an outlook on the upcoming results, with emphasis on heavy flavour production.
