Upgrade of the ALICE experiment

By Thomas Peitzmann

Abstract

While groundbreaking measurements on the properties of strongly interacting matter in p+p, p+A and A+A collisions at the LHC are being performed, it is clear that many important questions in heavy-ion physics will remain unanswered in this first phase of beam times up to 2017. The ALICE collaboration is setting up a program of detector upgrades to be installed in the LHC shutdown planned for ≈ 2018, to address the new scientific challenges. We will discuss examples of the scientific frontiers and upgrade projects under study for the ALICE experiment. © Owned by the authors, published by EDP Sciences, 2014
