ALICE EMCal Physics Performance Report [article]

Rene Bellwied for the ALICE EMCal Collaboration
2010 arXiv   pre-print
Combined with ALICE's excellent capabilities to track and identify particles from very low pT to high pT, the EMCal enables a comprehensive study of jet interactions in the medium produced in heavy ion  ...  The EMCal enables triggering and full reconstruction of high energy jets in ALICE, and augments existing ALICE capabilities to measure high momentum photons and electrons.  ...  Some systematic uncertainties, in particular those due to tracking distortions, cannot be accurately estimated using simulations and require experience with real ALICE data.  ...

Status of the ALICE experiment at the LHC [article]

Pietro Antonioli, for the ALICE Collaboration
2010 arXiv   pre-print
The status of the ALICE experiment is presented. ALICE is the LHC experiment devoted to heavy ion collisions.  ...  First results are briefly reviewed with an emphasis on performance of its detector sub-systems.  ...  At the time of the conference more than 700 millions of triggers were taken, with a recorded integrated luminosity of 10 nb −1 . Real collisions allowed to check if ALICE 'fits for purpose'.  ...
