Description

ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) is the LHC experiment specifically designed to study QCD matter under extreme conditions of temperature and pressure. The aim is to study the Quark-Gluon Plasma obtained with high energy nucleus-nucleus collisions and to characterize its properties. Results from the ALICE experiment for sqrt(s_NN)=2.76 TeV Pb-Pb collisions will be presented and compared with predictions and lower energy heavy-ion collisions.
