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:

ARGON IONS COLLIDE IN THE NA61/SHINE DETECTOR

In February 2015 for the first time argon ions were accelerated in the CERN SPS  and the first collisions were recorded by NA61/SHINE. The data are crucial for our search for the critical point of strongly interacting matter and  study of the properties of the onset of deconfinement. For details see:
