The LHCb Experiment at CERN

The LHCb detector

LHCb is a particle physics experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The detector system is optimized to detect the decay products of beauty and charm hadrons and idenitfy these long living particles using a precision vertex locator (VELO). LHCb is the only experiment at the LHC, which is equipped with particle identification (PID) subsystems covering the complete fiducial acceptance of the detector. These features make it an ideal instrument to study hadronic resonances, which are produced in the decays of heavy hadrons.

For more information check the LHCb public webpages.
