A Large Ion Collider Experiment
ALICE is a LHC experiment in which lead nuclei collisions are studied. Using the nuclei of atoms with many protons and neutrons, the collision energy is such to create a plasma of quarks and gluons: a state of matter that existed a few millionth of a second right after the Big Bang, in extreme density and temperature conditions.
