Measurement of neutral mesons, such as $¥pi^{0}$ and $¥eta$ plays an important role to study parton energy loss in the Quark-Gluon Plasma created in high-energy heavy-ion collisions. Such measurement in pp collisions at $¥sqrt{s}$ = 5.02 TeV provides a good reference for understanding the mechanisms appearing in p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions at the same collision energy.
In ALICE, we measure $¥pi^{0}$ and $¥eta$ mesons by using calorimeters, and photon conversion method (PCM). These different methods make it possible to measure neutral mesons in a very wide $p_{{¥rm T}}$ range. In the PCM, neutral mesons are measured by detecting decay photons converted in electron-positron pairs which are reconstructed in the ALICE central barrel detectors, Inner tracking system and Time Projection Chamber.
In this poster, we will present a detailed description of the analysis and the status of the measurements will be discussed.
