Polarization of Λ and ¯Λ Hyperons along the Beam Direction in Pb-Pb Collisions at √sNN=5.02 TeV

Academic Article


  • The polarization of the ? and ?¯ hyperons along the beam (z) direction, Pz, has been measured in Pb-Pb collisions at sNN=5.02 TeV recorded with ALICE at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The main contribution to Pz comes from elliptic flow-induced vorticity and can be characterized by the second Fourier sine coefficient Pz,s2=?Pzsin(2f-2?2)
