Coherent production of $J/\psi$ mesons is studied in ultraperipheral lead-lead collisions at a nucleon-nucleon centre-of-mass energy of 5 TeV, using a data sample collected by the LHCb experiment corresponding to an integrated luminosity of about $10 \mu b^{-1}$. The $J/\psi$ mesons are reconstructed in the dimuon final state and are required to have transverse momentum below 1 GeV. The cross-section within the rapidity range of $2.0<y<4.5$ is measured to be $4.45\pm0.24\pm0.18\pm0.58$ mb… Expand
