Recent results from ALICE

Roman Lietava (Birmingham)


A Large Ion Collider Experiment (ALICE) has been designed to measure the particles produced in the heavy ion collisions. Its design also makes it an excellent detector for minimum bias measurements in p-p collisions. The ALICE experiment has completed its initial installation phase and has started to take data during Large Hadron Collider run in 2009. In this talk the properties and capabilities of the ALICE detector will be illustrated by examples from the last year's operation and the first physics results will be presented.
