Light (anti-)nuclei production and flow in relativistic heavy-ion collisions Academic Article uri icon


  • 2015 American Physical Society. Using the coalescence model based on the phase-space distributions of protons, neutrons, s, and their antiparticles from a multiphase transport (AMPT) model, we study the production of light nuclei (H, H, He, H) and their antinuclei in Pb+Pb collisions at sNN=2.76 TeV. The resulting transverse momentum spectra, elliptic flows, and coalescence parameters for these nuclei are presented and compared with available experimental data. We also show the constituent number scaled elliptic flows of these nuclei and discuss its implications.
