  • © 2016 CERN for the benefit of the ALICE Collaboration. The production of the hypertriton nuclei HΛ3 and H[U+203E]Λ-3 has been measured for the first time in Pb-Pb collisions at sNN=2.76 TeV with the ALICE experiment at LHC. The p T -integrated HΛ3 yield in one unity of rapidity, dN/dy×B.R.(HΛ3→He3,π-)=(3.86±0.77(stat.)±0.68(syst.))×10-in the 0-10% most central collisions, is consistent with the predictions from a statistical thermal model using the same temperature as for the light hadrons. The coalescence parameter B 3 shows a dependence on the transverse momentum, similar to the B 2 of deuterons and the B 3 of 3 Hemore » nuclei. The ratio of yields S3=HΛ3/(He3×Λ/p) was measured to be S 3 =0.60±0.13(stat.)±0.21(syst.) in 0-10% centrality events; this value is compared to different theoretical models. The measured S 3 is compatible with thermal model predictions. The measured HΛ3 lifetime, τ=181-39+54(stat.)±33(syst.)ps is in agreement within 1σ with the world average value.« less
  • We present the first ever measurements of femtoscopic correlations between the K S 0 and K ± particles. The analysis was performed on the data from Pb–Pb collisions at √ sNN =2.76 TeV measured by the ALICE experiment. The observed femtoscopic correlations are consistent with final-state interactions proceeding via the a 0(980) resonance. The extracted kaon source radius and correlation strength parameters for K S 0K - are found to be equal within the experimental uncertainties to those for K S 0K +. Comparing the results of the present study with those from published identical-kaon femtoscopic studies by ALICE, massmore » and coupling parameters for the a 0 resonance are tested. Our results are also compatible with the interpretation of the a 0 having a tetraquark structure instead of that of a diquark.« less
  • Here, we present magnetization measurements on Sr4Ru3O10 as a function of temperature and magnetic field applied perpendicular to the magnetic easy c-axis inside the ferromagnetic phase. Peculiar metamagnetism evolves in Sr4Ru3O10 below the ferromagnetic transition TC as a double step in the magnetization at two critical fields Hc1 and Hc2. We map the H-T phase diagram with special focus on the temperature range 50 K ≤T≤TC. We find that the critical field Hc1(T) connects the field and temperature axes of the phase diagram, whereas the Hc2 boundary starts at 2.8 T for the lowest temperatures and ends in a criticalmore » endpoint at (1 T; 80 K). We also conclude from the temperature dependence of the ratio Hc1Hc2(T) that the double metamagnetic transition is an intrinsic effect of the material and it is not caused by sample stacking faults such as twinning or partial in-plane rotation between layers.« less
  • We present results of a search for two hypothetical strange dibaryon states, i.e. the H-dibaryon and the possible Λn bound state. The search is performed with the ALICE detector in central (0-10%) Pb-Pb collisions at sNN=2.76 TeV, by invariant mass analysis in the decay modes Λn→dπ+ and H-dibaryon →Λpπ - . No evidence for these bound states is observed. Upper limits are determined at 99% confidence level for a wide range of lifetimes and for the full range of branching ratios. The results are compared to thermal, coalescence and hybrid UrQMD model expectations, which describe correctly the production of othermore » loosely bound states, like the deuteron and the hypertriton.« less
