Title: Measurements of $$\pi ^\pm $$ π ± , K $$^\pm $$ ± , p and $${\bar{\text {p}}}$$ p ¯ spectra in proton-proton interactions at 20, 31, 40, 80 and 158  $$\text{ GeV }/c$$ GeV / c with the NA61/SHINE spectrometer at the CERN SPS: The NA61/SHINE Collaboration

Abstract

Measurements of inclusive spectra and mean multiplicities of $$\pi^\pm$$, K$$^\pm$$, p and $$\bar{\textrm{p}}$$ produced in inelastic p+p interactions at incident projectile momenta of 20, 31, 40, 80 and 158 GeV/c ($$\sqrt{s} = $$ 6.3, 7.7, 8.8, 12.3 and 17.3 GeV, respectively) were performed at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron using the large acceptance NA61/SHINE hadron spectrometer. Spectra are presented as function of rapidity and transverse momentum and are compared to predictions of current models. The measurements serve as the baseline in the NA61/SHINE study of the properties of the onset of deconfinement and search for the critical point of strongly interacting matter.
