Transverse momentum dependence of inclusive primary charged-particle production in p-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}} = 5.02$ TeV

Pages: 15

Abstract: The transverse momentum (pT) distribution of primary charged particles is measured at midrapidity in minimum-bias p-Pb collisions at sqrt(sNN) = 5.02 TeV with the ALICE detector at the LHC in the range 0.15 < pT < 50 GeV/c. The spectra are compared to the expectation based on binary collision scaling of particle production in pp collisions, leading to a nuclear modification factor consistent with unity for pT larger than 2 GeV/c. The measurement is compared to theoretical calculations and to data in Pb-Pb collisions at sqrt(sNN) = 2.76 TeV
