    LHCb: The Large Hadron Collider Beauty Experiment for Precise Measurements of CP-Violation and Rare Decays

The LHCb detector is a forward single arm spectrometer dedicated to the study of CP-violation and other rare phenomena in the decays of Beauty particles.
Its precise particle identification by Ring-Imaging Cherenkov Detectors renders a wide range of multi-particle final states accessible and provides precise measurements of all angles of the unitarity triangle. The high-resolution microstrip vertex detector facilitates multi-vertex event reconstruction and proper-time measurements.
LHCb requires only a modest luminosity to reveal its full performance potential.

We are now involved in upgrade activities. Information about the R&D on a new detector based on scintillating fibers and SiPMs can be found here .
