The measurement of primary π±, K±, p and p production at mid-rapidity (|y| < 0.5) in proton–proton collisions at √ s = 7 TeV performed with a large ion collider experiment at the large hadron collider (LHC) is reported. Particle identification is performed using the specific ionisation energy-loss and time-of-flight information, the ringimaging Cherenkov(More)
The pseudorapidity density of charged particles, dN_{ch}/dη, at midrapidity in Pb-Pb collisions has been measured at a center-of-mass energy per nucleon pair of sqrt[s_{NN}]=5.02  TeV. For the 5% most central collisions, we measure a value of 1943±54. The rise in dN_{ch}/dη as a function of sqrt[s_{NN}] is steeper than that observed in proton-proton(More)
We report the first results of elliptic (v_{2}), triangular (v_{3}), and quadrangular (v_{4}) flow of charged particles in Pb-Pb collisions at a center-of-mass energy per nucleon pair of sqrt[s_{NN}]=5.02  TeV with the ALICE detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The measurements are performed in the central pseudorapidity region |η|<0.8 and for the(More)
Monolithic CMOS pixel sensors offer unprecedented opportunities for fast nanoimaging through direct electron detection in transmission electron microscopy. We present the design and a full characterisation of a CMOS pixel test structure able to withstand doses in excess of 1 MRad. Data collected with electron beams at various energies of interest in(More)
A silicon-on-insulator (SOI) process for pixelated radiation detectors is developed. It is based on a 0.2 mm CMOS fully depleted (FD-)SOI technology. The SOI wafer is composed of a thick, high-resistivity substrate for the sensing part and a thin Si layer for CMOS circuits. Two types of pixel detectors, one integration-type and the other counting-type, are(More)
A cluster imaging technique for Transmission Electron Microscopy with a direct detection CMOS pixel sensor is presented. Charge centre-of-gravity reconstruction for individual electron clusters improves the spatial resolution and thus the point spread function. Data collected with a CMOS sensor with 9.5×9.5 μm pixels show an improvement of a factor of two(More)
We report the measurements of correlations between event-by-event fluctuations of amplitudes of anisotropic flow harmonics in nucleus-nucleus collisions, obtained for the first time using a new analysis method based on multiparticle cumulants in mixed harmonics. This novel method is robust against systematic biases originating from nonflow effects and by(More)
We report on the inclusive production cross sections of J/ψ , ψ(2S), Υ(1S), Υ(2S) and Υ(3S), measured at forward rapidity with the ALICE detector in pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy √ s = 8 TeV. The analysis is based on data collected at the LHC and corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 1.23 pb−1. Quarkonia are reconstructed in the dimuon-decay(More)
The anticipated ILC physics program indicates that identification of heavy fermions with high efficiency and purity is of primary importance. The requirements in terms of track extrapolation accuracy are ≃ 5 μm ⊕ 10 μm pt (GeV) . The Vertex Tracker design and the sensor R&D is driven by this requirement. CMOS pixel sensors are an attractive option for the(More)
