The LHCb Vertex Detector (VeLo) is a solid-state device placed close to
very close to the beam-pipe (8 mm).
The LHCb group of EPFL has contributed to its construction.
The main involvement is in the development of the transmission of the
signals from the detector to the off-detector electronics (TELL1 modules),
and to the low voltage power supply system.
For more information see the
official VeLo page.
