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:

NA61/SHINE: MORE PRECISION FOR NEUTRINO BEAMS

An experiment at CERN is making use of detectors designed for heavy-ion studies to gain a more precise knowledge of neutrino production at accelerators. For details see:
