Abstract

1 Motivation ALICE – A Large Ion Collider Experiment [1, 2] is a dedicated heavy-ion experiment at the LHC. Due to its detectors' characteristics it can study pp collisions as well as heavy-ion collisions. Special strength of ALICE is the low p T cut off (∼ 0.1 GeV/c) due to the low magnetic field, the small material budget (X/X 0 ≈ 10%) 1 and its excellent… (More)
