Recent Results from Cern-WA98

  • Paul Stankus


The CERN experiment WA98 is a general-survey, open-spectrometer experiment designed to examine 160 A GeV/c Pb+A collisions at the CERN-SPS. The experiment has a broad physics agenda, as suggested by its many different subsystems. A diagram of the experiment as it stood in 1995 is shown in Figure 1. Detectors whose results are presented here are described briefly:


Transverse Energy Central Collision Reaction Plane Negative Particle Intermediate Centrality
