Experimental poster Heavy Ions Poster Session (I)

The measurement of (anti)nuclei production in pp, p-A and A-A collisions at the ultrarelativistic energies of LHC is important to understand hadronization. The excellent tracking and particle identification capabilities of ALICE make it the most suited detector at the LHC to study light (anti)nuclei produced in high-energy hadronic collisions. (Anti)nuclei with mass numbers up to 4, such as (anti)deuterons, (anti)tritons, (anti)$^3$He and (anti)$^4$He have been successfully identified in ALICE at mid rapidity $|\eta|<$0.9.
In this poster, multiplicity dependent results on the yields, transverse momentum distributions and the antinuclei/nuclei ratios will be presented and compared with the expectations of coalescence and statistical hadronization models to provide insight into their production mechanism in heavy-ion collisions.
