 Performance of the ALICE Experiment at the CERN LHC / , /ALICE ALICE is the heavy-ion experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The experiment continuously took data during the first physics campaign of the machine from fall 2009 until early 2013, using proton and lead-ion beams.

 Centrality, rapidity and transverse momentum dependence of the J/$\psi$ suppression in Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$=2.76 TeV / ALICE Collaboration The inclusive J/$\psi$ nuclear modification factor ($R_{AA}$) in Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$=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 $\mu^+\mu^-$ 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 $R_{AA}$ 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.
