Experiment ALICE

ALICE logoALICE is the abbreviation of  A Large Ion Collider Experiment, one of  the largest experiments in the world , doing research into the physics of the microworld. It is one of  four main experiments  conducted on the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) accelerator  of the European centre for particle and nuclear physics in CERN near Geneva in Switzerland. Over 1000 physicists, technicians and engineers take part in the project, together with 200 PhD students from 105 institutions , from 30 countries all over the world.   

The Czech contribution to the experiment ALICE includes the design and construction of the already installed system of silicon drift detectors (SDD),  inner tracking system (ITS), and the development of a forward electromagnetic calorimeter (FOCAL).   A number of staff do data analysis of  ALICE experiment, identification of  particles, their properties and significance for the assessment of the fundamental properties of matter.
