Abstract
The NA61/SHINE experiment aims to discover the critical point of strongly interacting matter and study the properties of the onset of deconfinement. For this purpose we perform a two-dimensional scan of the ($T-\mu_{B}$) phase diagram by varying the energy ($5.1 < \sqrt{s_{NN}} < 16.8/17.3$ GeV) and the system size (p+p, p+Pb, Be+Be, Ar+Sc, Xe+La, Pb+Pb) of the collisions. In this article the NA61/SHINE results on particle spectra as well as fluctuations and correlations in p+p, Be+Be, Ar+Sc, and Pb+Pb collisions are presented. In particular, the latest results on charged kaons spectra, charged pions ratios (electromagnetic effects), proton intermittency, and anisotropic flow are discussed. Finally, the motivation, NA61/SHINE plans, and the first measurements of open charm production in heavy ion collisions at the Super Proton Synchrotron energies are shown.
