Quarkonia, i.e. bound states of and quarks, are powerful observables to study the properties of nuclear matter under extreme conditions. The formation of a Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP), which is predicted by lattice QCD calculations at high temperatures as reached at the LHC energies, has a strong influence on the production and behavior of quarkonia. The latest ALICE results on bottomonium and charmonium production in nucleus−nucleus collisions are presented. This includes measurements of the and nuclear modification factor (RAA) at forward rapidity and the RAA and as a function of centrality, pT and rapidity in Pb–Pb collisions at . Also, first results from measurements in Xe–Xe collisions at are presented. Further on, the experimental results are compared to various calculations from theoretical models.
