First experience and results with the LHCb Silicon Tracker
The LHCb experiment is designed to perform high-precision measurements of CP violation and rare decays of b hadrons. The construction and installation of the Silicon Tracker (ST) was completed by the summer of 2008. Here, we report on first results obtained using the data taken during injection tests ('TED' run) in August and September 2008. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
