SHINING MORE LIGHT ON THE ONSET OF DECONFINEMENT

NA61/SHINE has recently completed data acquisition for its original programme on strong interactions. The Collaboration has gathered a rich data on collisions of ions in a two-dimensional scan: varying the beam energy and the sizes of colliding nuclei. Most recent analysis of hadron production in 40Ar+45Sc and 7Be+9Be interactions deliver some puzzling results, that none of the current theoretical models can reproduce.

NA61/SHINE GIVES NEUTRINO EXPERIMENTS A HELPING HAND.

NA61/SHINE HAS EXECUTED A PROGRAM OF MEASUREMENTS AIMED AT IMPROVING NEUTRINO FLUX PREDICTIONS IN FERMILAB’S NEUTRINO BEAMS.

NA61/SHINE, thanks to its large-acceptance Time Projection Chambers, is able to make very precise measurements of the interactions that happen in neutrino beams. In the past, NA61/SHINE has executed a program of measurements aimed at improving neutrino flux predictions in Fermilab’s neutrino beams. For more information see the  EP newsletter.

A SPECIAL XENON RUN FOR NA61/SHINE

Earlier in October, the Large Hadron Collider had a special test run of colliding xenon nuclei; a new flavour compared to the standard proton and lead collisions foreseen in the LHC experimental programme. Xenon collisions were requested by NA61, a fixed target experiment at the SPS and Xenon ions were injected at the LHC for a short test. For more details see the EP newsletter.

XENON IN ACTION

As part of the NA61 fixed-target physics programme, the injector complex currently provides Xe ions to the SPS. This opened up the possibility of also extracting Xe beams and sending them to the LHC. For more details see here.
