We show that we can reach a global and coherent description of bottomonium suppression in both proton-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions at the LHC energies. The measured relative suppression of the excited bottomonium states as compared to their ground state allows us to constrain the scattering cross sections between the bottomonia and the comovers created during the collisions. Our result hints at a similar energy distribution of these comovers in the environment created by proton-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions. Along the way of our study, we also update our knowledge for the bottomonium feed-down pattern and our comprehension on the modification of the nuclear parton distribution functions in proton-nucleus collisions.
We present our results for $p$Pb collisions at 5.02 and 8.16 TeV and for PbPb collisions at 2.76 and 5.02 TeV.
