NA61/SHINE EFFORTS IN SUPPORT OF THE US NEUTRINO PHYSICS PROGRAM.

Due to the success of the T2K experience a new partnership between scientists from US institutions and CERN was initiated to improve flux predictions for the US neutrino program at Fermilab. Researchers from Fermilab, Los Alamos National Lab, University of Colorado, and University of Pittsburgh wishing to improve the understanding of the interactions between the protons and the target recently joined the NA61/SHINE collaboration. For more details, see here.

FIRST LEAD-LEAD COLLISIONS IN NA61/SHINE

In preparation for the beam energy scan with lead-lead collisions planned in 2016 and 2018, NA61/SHINE conducted beam and detector tests with lead ions accelerated to the total energy of 6 TeV. For more deteils see:

NA61/SHINE SHEDS LIGHT ON STRONG INTERACTIONS

The past several months were particularly important for the NA61/SHINE programme on strong interactions. This period was crowned by the ongoing beam energy scan with argon-scandium collisions. For details see:

ACCELERATING ARGON IONS AT THE SPS

This year, the SPS accelerated argon ions for the first time, delivering beam to the NA61/SHINE experiment in the North Area. NA61/SHINE explores the phenomenon of deconfinement by studying the collisions of ions of different masses, at different energies. For details see:
