Abstract

The inclusive J/Psi production has been studied in Pb-Pb and pp collisions at the centre-of-mass energy per nucleon pair root sNN= 5.02TeV, using the ALICE detector at the CERN LHC. The J/Psi meson is reconstructed, in the centre-of-mass rapidity interval 2.5 < y < 4and in the transverse- momentum range p(T)< 12GeV/c, via its decay to a muon pair. In this Letter, we present results on the inclusive J/Psi cross section in pp collisions at root s= 5.02TeV and on the nuclear modification factor R-AA. The latter is presented as a function of the centrality of the collision and, for central collisions, as a function of the transverse momentum p(T) of the J/Psi. The measured R-AA values indicate a suppression of the J/Psi in nuclear collisions and are then compared to our previous results obtained in Pb-Pb collisions at root sNN= 2.76TeV. The ratio of the R-AA values at the two energies is also computed and compared to calculations of statistical and dynamical models. The numerical value of the ratio for central events (0-10% centrality) is 1.17 +/- 0.04( stat)+/- 0.20(syst). In central events, as a function of p(T), a slight increase of R-AA with collision energy is visible in the region 2 < p(T)< 6GeV/c. Theoretical calculations qualitatively describe the measurements, within uncertainties. (C) 2017 The Author. Published by Elsevier B.V.
