# Dielectron production in $^{12}$C+$^{12}$C collisions at 2 A GeV with HADES

Abstract : We report on a measurement of electron pair production in 12C+12C collisions at an incident energy of 2 GeV per nucleon with the HADES spectrometer. The measured pair production probabilities span over five orders of magnitude from the π0-Dalitz to the ρ/ω invariant-mass region. Dalitz decays of π0 and η account for all the yield up to 0.15 GeV/c2, but for only about 50% above this mass. The excess yield is in agreement with the former DLS result if one assumes that it scales with beam energy like pion production. A preliminary analysis of 12C+12C collisions at an incident energy of 1 A GeV, measured with the HADES detector, supports this scenario.
