Description

Photo-produced vector mesons in ultra-peripheral Pb-Pb collisions at forward rapidity are sensitive to the small-x parton distribution functions (nPDFs) in the target nucleus. In pPb collisions, measurements of the Z production in forward (pPb) and backward (Pbp) configuration are also sensitive to the nPDFs in another kinematic domain, both probes allowing to study in a complementary fashion the structure of the nucleus.

In this talk, we present the latest results obtained on the charmonium production in PbPb ultra-peripheral collisions and the Z production in pPb and Pbp collisions by LHCb.
