A first look at Pb on Pb collisions at 160 GeV/c at CERN SPS

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Last year marked a major milestone in the field of relativistic nuclear collisions. Lead beams were successfully accelerated at CERN SPS to an energy of about 160 GeV per nucleon in the projectile (i.e. to about 32 TeV total energy) and the first preliminary results of the analysis of Pb on Pb interactions are already available and discussed. Before going on to the discussion of these results, it would be helpful to stand back for a moment and try to recapitulate what we have learned from light {open_quotes}heavy{close_quotes} ion experiments at CERN SPS with oxygen and sulphur beams.

Description

Last year marked a major milestone in the field of relativistic nuclear collisions. Lead beams were successfully accelerated at CERN SPS to an energy of about 160 GeV per nucleon in the projectile (i.e. to about 32 TeV total energy) and the first preliminary results of the analysis of Pb on Pb interactions are already available and discussed. Before going on to the discussion of these results, it would be helpful to stand back for a moment and try to recapitulate what we have learned from light {open_quotes}heavy{close_quotes} ion experiments at CERN SPS with oxygen and sulphur beams. In the first part of this overview we shall shortly summarize the results of the experimental program with {sup 16}O and {sup 32}S beams at CERN SPS. Next, we shall describe the concept of an event-by-event (e-b-e) analysis proposed for study of individual Pb+Pb collisions with several thousand identified hadrons in the final state. The main section of this paper will be focused on the results (very preliminary) of the analysis of the first run with the lead projectiles. To conclude, we will present plans for the future (as we understand them now).
