1.2 TeV collisions at LHCb

On December 14th 1.2 TeV proton beams have collided at LHCb during LHC machine studies. Many LHCb subdetectors, except for sensitive silicon detectors, recorded the world’s highest energy pp collisions.…

K0 reconstruction

So called “strange particles” are produced in the proton-proton collisions and decay inside LHCb detector into two other particles reconstructed as red tracks (more details).

RICH rings

LHCb RICH detectors are used to identify particles. The circles show possible position of measured points for different kinds of particles traversing the detector. The measured points clearly choose one…
