Description

Ultra-relativistic heavy ions generate strong electromagnetic fields which offer the possibility to study, at the LHC, gamma-nucleus processes in PbPb collisions and gamma-proton processes in pPb collisions. These events are called ultra-peripheral collisions (UPC). The photoproduction of J/Psi vector mesons in PbPb (pPb) UPC is sensitive to the gluon distribution of the interacting nuclei (proton). Here we report on the ALICE measurement of the cross section for J/Psi coherent photoproduction measured in PbPb UPC at sqrt(s_NN) = 2.76 TeV for the rapidity ranges -3.6
