Study of prompt D 0 meson production in pPb collisions at √sNN=5 TeV

The LHCb Collaboration

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Production of prompt D0 mesons is studied in proton-lead and lead-proton collisions recorded at the LHCb detector at the LHC. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 1.58±0.02 nb−1 recorded at a nucleon-nucleon centre-of-mass energy of sNN=5 TeV. Measurements of the differential cross-section, the forward-backward production ratio and the nuclear modification factor are reported using D0 candidates with transverse momenta less than 10 GeV/c and rapidities in the ranges 1.5 < y< 4.0 and −5.0 < y< −2.5 in the nucleon-nucleon centre-of-mass system.
