A New measurement of J/psi suppression in Pb-Pb collisions at 158-GeV per nucleon

The NA50 collaboration Alessandro, B. ; Alexa, C. ; Arnaldi, R. ; et al.
Eur.Phys.J. C39 (2005) 335-345, 2005.
Inspire Record 667013 DOI 10.17182/hepdata.57372

We present a new measurement of J/psi production in Pb-Pb collisions at 158 GeV/nucleon, from the data sample collected in year 2000 by the NA50 Collaboration, under improved experimental conditions with respect to previous years. With the target system placed in vacuum, the setup was better adapted to study, in particular, the most peripheral nuclear collisions with unprecedented accuracy. The analysis of this data sample shows that the (J/psi)/Drell-Yan cross-sections ratio measured in the most peripheral Pb-Pb interactions is in good agreement with the nuclear absorption pattern extrapolated from the studies of proton-nucleus collisions. Furthermore, this new measurement confirms our previous observation that the (J/psi)/Drell-Yan cross-sections ratio departs from the normal nuclear absorption pattern for semi-central Pb-Pb collisions and that this ratio persistently decreases up to the most central collisions.

Bottomonium and Drell-Yan production in p-A collisions at 450- GeV

The NA50 Collaboration has measured heavy-quarkonium production in p-A collisions at 450 GeV incident energy (sqrt(s) = 29.1 GeV). We report here results on the production of the Upsilon states and of high-mass Drell-Yan muon pairs (m > 6 GeV). The cross-section at midrapidity and the A-dependence of the measured yields are determined and compared with the results of other fixed-target experiments and with the available theoretical estimates. Finally, we also address some issues concerning the transverse momentum distributions of the measured dimuons.

Drell-Yann (for the mass region MMUMU>6GeV/c**2) and bottomonium cross sections, and their ratio.

Mean pT and Mean PT**2 for Drell-Yann (4.5<MMUMU<8 GeV/c**2) Errors for Drell-Yann are purely statistical, error value for Upsilon includes a systematical error due to uncertianty in the extrapolation of the drell-yann yield into the upsilon region. The total error is anyway dominated by the statistical contribution.

J/psi and psi-prime production and their normal nuclear absorption in proton-nucleus collisions at 400-GeV

The NA50 collaboration Alessandro, B. ; Alexa, C. ; Arnaldi, R. ; et al.
Eur.Phys.J. C48 (2006) 329, 2006.
Inspire Record 733916 DOI 10.17182/hepdata.57412

We report a new measurement of J/psi, psi' and Drell-Yan cross-sections, in the kinematical domain $-0.425&lt;y_{\rm cm}&lt;0.575$ and $-0.5&lt;\cos\theta_{\rm CS}&lt;0.5$, performed at the CERN-SPS using 400 GeV/c incident protons on Be, Al, Cu, Ag, W and Pb targets. The dependence of the charmonia production cross-sections on the size of the target nucleus allows to quantify the so-called normal nuclear absorption. In the framework of the Glauber model, this new measurement is combined with results previously obtained with the same apparatus, under different experimental conditions, and leads to a precise determination of the J/psi and psi' absorption cross-sections in the surrounding nuclear matter.

psi' production is studied in Pb-Pb collisions at 158 GeV/c per nucleon incident momentum. Absolute cross-sections are measured and production rates are investigated as a function of the centrality of the collision. The results are compared with those obtained for lighter colliding systems and also for the J/psi meson produced under identical conditions.
