NA61/SHINE (SPS Heavy Ion and Neutrino Experiment) is a fixed-target experiment operating at the CERN SPS accelerator. The main goal of the strong interactions program of NA61/SHINE is to study the properties of the phase transition between confined matter and quark-gluon plasma by performing a two-dimensional scan in beam momentum and size of collided nuclei. Within this program, collisions of different systems (p+p, p+Pb, Be+Be, Ar+Sc, Xe+La, Pb+Pb) over a wide range of beam momenta (13A-150(8)A GeV/c) have been recorded.
This contribution will discuss the latest results of hadron production in p+p, Be+Be, Ar+Sc and Pb+Pb reactions measured by the NA61/SHINE. In particular, the results include charged kaons and pions spectra, anisotropic flow, higher-order moments of multiplicity and net charge distributions. The presented data will be compared with the predictions of different theoretical models as well as the results from other experiments. Finally, the motivation and plans for future NA61/SHINE measurements will be discussed.
