© 2016 Elsevier B.V. The production rates of heavy quarkonia in ion-ion collisions provide sensitive probes in the studies of the hot and dense matter formed in these collisions at high energies. However, a reference for understanding the behavior in the hot medium is necessary; p-A collisions open the possibility to study heavy quarkonia states in a smaller system of much lower average temperature. This is an important step in forming a baseline for understanding A-A collisions, as well as an investigation into the nature of modifications of the parton distributions in the nucleus. Using data collected at the LHC in 2013, we show results on the prompt J/Ψ and Ψ(2S) nuclear modification factors and the double ratio, Ψ(2S) divided by J/Ψ in p-Pb divided by the same in p-p, in p-Pb collisions at 5.02 TeV. The charmonia states were reconstructed via the dimuon decay channel and the yield is analyzed differentially in bins of transverse momentum, rapidity, and event activity.
