Centrality, rapidity and transverse momentum dependence of J/Psi suppression in Pb-Pb collisions at sqrt(sNN)=2.76TeV

Abstract : The inclusive J/Psi nuclear modification factor Raa in Pb-Pb collisions at sqrt(sNN)=2.76TeV has been measured by ALICE as a function of centrality in the e+e- decay channel at mid-rapidity |y| < 0.8 and as a function of centrality, transverse momentum and rapidity in the u+u- decay channel at forward-rapidity 2.5 < y < 4.The J/Psi yields measured in Pb-Pb are suppressed compared to those in pp collisions scaled by the number of binary collisions.The Raa integrated over a centrality range corresponding to 90% of the inelastic Pb-Pb cross section is 0.72 +- 0.06 (stat.) +- 0.10 (syst.) at mid-rapidity and 0.57 +- 0.01 (stat.) +- 0.09 (syst.) at forward-rapidity.At low transverse momentum, significantly larger values of Raa are measured at forward-rapidity compared to measurements at lower energy.These features suggest that a contribution to the J/Psi yield originates from charm quarks (re)combination in the deconfined partonic medium.
