A Large Ion Collider Experiment – ALICE

Study of the properties of the Quark-Gluon Plasma with the ALICE experiment at the LHC

The ALICE group at the IPHC exploits the ultra-relativistic collisions of the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at CERN to probe the properties of strongly interacting matter when brought to temperatures capable of creating a new state, called Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP). In this state, close to that of the primordial matter of the Universe, its elementary constituents, quarks and gluons, are deconfined. Studies at IPHC revolve around characterizing the thermodynamic properties, transport processes and hadronization mechanisms of the QGP, through the measurement of strange, charmed, and beautiful hadrons. At the same time, the IPHC contributes to the instrumental developments of the ALICE experiment, in particular those based on monolithic active pixel sensors made of silicon.
