NA61/SHINE studies hadron production in hadron-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions at the CERN SPS.

Detector

The NA61 detector is an upgrade of NA49 NA61 is a large acceptance hadron spectometer with excellent capabilities for momentum, charge and mass measurements. The experimental facility consists of Time Projection Chambers, Time of Flight and Projectile Spectator Detectors.

Physics goals

  • Search for the critical point of strongly interacting matter.
  • Detailed study of the onset of deconfinement.
  • Hadron production reference measurements for neutrino (T2K) and cosmic-ray (Pierre Auger Observatory, KASCADE-Grande and KASCADE) experiments.
  • Study of high transverse momentum phenomena in proton-nucleus and proton-proton interactions.

  • NA61 | Welcome to the NA61/SHINE experiment!
