Abstract

ALICE (a large ion collider experiment) is a dedicated detector designed to exploit the unique physics opportunities which will be offered by nucleus-nucleus collisions at the LHC. At the LHC, it will be possible to explore a radically new regime of matter, stepping up by a large factor in both volume and energy density from the nuclear interactions foreseeable at the SpS. In addition, thanks to the huge number of secondaries produced, it will be possible for the first time to treat astrongly interacting system as a thermodynamical one, measuring most of the relevant variables on an event-by-event basis. ALICE has been conceived as a general-purpose detector, in which most of the hadrons, leptons and photons produced in the interaction can be measured and identified. The baseline design consists of a central (\eta\ less than or equal to 0.9) detector covering the full azimuth and a forward (2.4 less than or equal to eta less than or equal to 4) muon arm, complemented by a multiplicity detector covering the forward rapidity region (up to \eta\ = 4.5) and a zero degree calorimeter. The central detector will be embedded in a large magnet with a weak field of 0.2 T, and will consist of a high-resolution inner tracking system, a cylindrical time projection chamber, particle identification arrays (time of flight and ring imaging cerenkov detectors) and a single-arm electromagnetic calorimeter. A forward magnetic spectrometer to study vector meson production completes the apparatus.
