The NA60 experiment at the CERN SPS studies dimuon production in nucleusnucleus and proton-nucleus collisions.

Abstract

The NA60 experiment at the CERN SPS studies dimuon production in nucleusnucleus and proton-nucleus collisions. One of the main detectors in the apparatus is the silicon pixel vertex telescope, which tracks charged particles in the target region. This detector complements the information from the muon spectrometer, improving the dimuon mass resolution and signal-to-noise ratio of the experiment, overcoming the main limitations of its predecessors. The silicon vertex telescope also provides the experiment with the capability of measuring charged particle multiplicities. In this paper we briefly describe the experiment and some preliminary results on charged particle multiplicities for two different colliding systems at different incident beam energies (Pb-Pb at 30 AGeV and In-In at 158 AGeV).
