Abstract We report results on ψ' production in Pb–Pb interactions at 158 GeV/c per nucleon incident momentum, from data collected by the NA50 experiment at CERN SPS. A comparison of proton- and sulfur-induced collisions shows a similar ψ' production rate per nucleon–nucleon collision for S–U and Pb–Pb reactions, decreasing with increasing centrality and significantly lower than the rate measured from proton-induced reactions. This feature contrasts with J/ψ production which exhibits a similar behaviour for reactions induced by protons and by sulfur nuclei and a significantly suppressed rate for Pb–Pb interactions.
