Antimatter matters: the first decade and the next decade of the Large Hadron Collider beauty experiment

With Professor Chris Parkes, Spokesperson of the LHCb Collaboration
Tuesday, 28 March, 2023 - 16:00
Classroom MF.S.01 - Sant Miquel Building, La Salle Campus Barcelona (C/ Sant Joan de La Salle, 42, Barcelona)

The Large Hadron Collider beauty (LHCb) collaboration operates one of the four large experiments at the CERN LHC, publishing over 650 scientific papers in its first decade of operations. The LHCb has discovered differences in the behaviour of matter and antimatter in three new system and studied particles that can oscillate into their own antiparticles. It has found over sixty new particles, including exotic particles containing four or five quarks. By the quirks of quantum mechanics, is searching for new fundamental physics at energies higher than those of the LHC beams and has recently installed its new detector upgrading the technology to allow it to further its studies, taking ten times more data and operating for the next decade.

This session with Professor Chris Parkes will appoint the highlights of the science programme and of the new detector system will be described. It will take place on Tuesday, March 28th, at 16.00h in La Salle Campus Barcelona and can be followed via streaming.
