  • Di-muon invariant mass distribution for oppositely charged muon pairs with transverse momentum above 20 GeV and the above track isolation.
  • The momentum vector is jointly reconstructed in the muon spectrometer and the inner tracking detector.
  • The measured di-muon mass is shown for the full pp data of 2010 in first-pass reconstruction using preliminary calibration and alignment constants and after the reprocessing of the data with improved calibration and alignment constants.

Di-muon invariant mass distribution for 40.0pb-1 at 7 TeV

Di-muon invariant mass spectrum
Di-muon invariant mass spectrum for data, from fully combined opposite sign muons in EF_MU15 triggered events. The muon Event Filter trigger applies a pT threshold at ~15GeV, which for consistency is reconfirmed offline for one of the two inner detector-muon spectrometer combined tracks (the other one is required to pass a p_T threshold of 2.5 GeV). The plot shown corresponds to an integrated luminosity of about 40 pb−1.
Differences to the previous plots arise mainly from the use of a high trigger threshold and from plotting the event density in each bin.

Di-muon invariant mass distribution for 3.0pb-1 at 7 TeV

Di-muon invariant mass spectrum
Di-muon invariant mass spectrum for data, from fully combined opposite sign muons in L1_MU6 triggered events. The muon trigger applies a p_T threshold at ~6GeV, while the two inner detector-muon spectrometer combined tracks have a p_T threshold of 4 and 2.5 GeV respectively. The plot shown corresponds to an integrated luminosity of about 3.0 pb−1.

Di-muon invariant mass distribution for 330nb-1 at 7 TeV

Di-muon invariant mass spectrum
Di-muon invariant mass spectrum for data, from fully combined opposite sign muons in L1_MU6 triggered events. The muon trigger applies a p_T threshold at ~6GeV, while the inner detector-muon spectrometer combined tracks have an effective p_T threshold of ~4GeV in the barrel, which decreases at high pseudo-rapidity. No explicit selection on muon p_T is applied. The plot shown corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 330 nb−1. Plot prepared for and presented at ICHEP 2010. Kept for reference. For more recent talks please use the 3.0 pb−1 distribution.

Di-muon invariant mass distribution for 320µb-1 at 7 TeV

Di-muon invariant mass distribution for 320µb-1 at 7 TeV using minimum bias trigger
  • Di-muon invariant mass distribution for oppositely charged muon pairs with an energy above 3 GeV each: calculated from inner detector track parameters after fit to a common vertex.
  • At least one muon must be jointly reconstructed in the muon spectrometer and the inner tracking detector (“combined muon”).
  • The fit to the distribution is an unbinned maximum likelihood fit, using event-by-event errors calculated for each di-muon:
    Gaussian-mean mass: 3.06±0.02 GeV
    Resolution: 0.08±0.02 GeV
    Number of signal events: 49±12
    Number of background events: 28±4
  • The mass region shown in the plot is fitted. Signal and background are computed in a mass range: 2.82-3.30GeV (3 σ around the peak).

Preliminary Figures from 2009 Collision Data at 900 GeV

Figures for runs 142171, 142174, 142189, 142191, 142193, 142195, 142383 (TOROID ON)

Blue led  The Solenoid field was on. The Toroid field was raised to nominal value during run 142171. As a consequence only the last Luminosity Blocks of that run are considered here.
Blue led  The Luminosity Blocks used were obtained requesting safe beams from LHC and all the relevant detectors (MDTs, RPCs, TGCs, Pixels, SCT, TRT) to be operated at nominal HV. Also the level 1 central trigger processor and DAQ status were checked to be good.
Blue led  Collisions were selected considering only paired Bunch Crossing Identifiers and through the timing of MBTS or LAr
Blue led  Only events with at least 3 tracks in Inner Detector, with at least 1 Pixel hits and 6 SCT hits, and with one track with p > 4 GeV, were considered
Blue led  Tight cuts on the muon candidates were applied requesting a confirmation in the Inner Detector for all of them
Blue led  Results shown here are for the muon candidates with p > 4 GeV, pt > 2.5 GeV and abs(eta)<2.5 (50 candidates) and are compared to the non-diffractive Minimum bias MC normalized to the number of entries

Figures for runs 141749 and 141811 (TOROID OFF)

Blue led  The toroid magnets, which bend the muon tracks in the z projection, were OFF for runs 141749 and 141811, so the muons follow a straight path and the momentum is not measured in the spectrometer.
Blue led  However, the acceptance is increased due to the fact that even very low momentum muons can traverse the spectrometer.
Blue led  Cathode Strip Chambers are not yet included in the runs 141749 and 141811
