Abstract

The ratios of yields of anti-baryons to baryons probes the mechanisms of baryon-number transport. Results for anti-p/p, anti-lambda/lambda, anti-xi+/xi-, e antiomega+/omega- in pp collisions at √s = 0.9, 2.76 and 7 TeV, measured with the ALICE detector at the LHC, are reported. Within the experimental uncertainties and ranges covered by our measurement, these ratios are independent of rapidity, transverse momentum and multiplicity for all measured energies. The results are compared to expectations from event generators, such as PYTHIA and HIJING/B, that are used to model the particle production in pp collisions. The energy dependence of anti-p/p, anti-lambda/lambda, anti-xi+/xi-, e antiomega+/omega- , reaching values compatible with unity for √s = 7 TeV, complement the earlier anti-p/p measurement of ALICE. These dependencies can be described by exchanges with the Regge-trajectory intercept of αJ ≈ 0.5, which are suppressed with increasing rapidity interval Delta-y. Any significant contribution of an exchange not suppressed at large delta-y (reached at LHC energies) is disfavoured.
