The NA60 experiment studies open charm and prompt dimuon production in proton-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions at the CERN SPS. From June 2002 to November 2004 we collected data on dimuon production from proton-nucleus and Indium-Indium collisions. These data samples allow us to study low mass dimuon production (resonances and continuum), J/π suppression and open-charm production. We will also search for thermal dileptons, through the yield of "intermediate mass dimuons". In this paper we briefly overview some of the results obtained up to now, after shortly describing the detector.

Abstract

The NA60 experiment studies open charm and prompt dimuon production in proton-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions at the CERN SPS. From June 2002 to November 2004 we collected data on dimuon production from proton-nucleus and Indium-Indium collisions. These data samples allow us to study low mass dimuon production (resonances and continuum), J/π suppression and open-charm production. We will also search for thermal dileptons, through the yield of "intermediate mass dimuons". In this paper we briefly overview some of the results obtained up to now, after shortly describing the detector.
