The NA61/SHINE detector allows for precise measurements of properties of particles, produced in collisions of hadrons and atomic nuclei.
The experiment is located in the North Area of CERN and the particles are accelerated by SPS
Central collision of two beryllium nuclei ''photographed'' by our detector
Our teams are looking for the evidence of a critical point of strongly interacting matter by changing collision energy and mass of colliding nuclei.
We perform precise measurements needed in studies of neutrino and cosmic-ray properties
