Heavy-ion collisions at LHC: The Alice Experiment
GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH, Germany
We present an introduction to heavy-ion collisions at LHC with special emphasis on the ALICE experiment. The lecture is divided in three parts. The ﬁrst contains a description of the new conditions for the creation of the Quark Gluon Plasma in the laboratory with HIC at the LHC in the context of the 30 years of history of HIC. The second part is a detailed explanation of the diﬀerent detectors of the ALICE experiment as well as of ALICE capabilities in terms of tracking and particle identiﬁcation. The last part presents a selection of the ALICE physics capabilities in soft physics, heavy quarks, quarkonia, photons and jets.
