LHCb at Nikhef

LHCb Nikhef

This is the TWiki page for Nikhef collaborators on the LHCb experiment.

It has been setup to help you, and contains hints and tips about working here at Nikhef and for LHCb in general.

Nikhef group structure

The B-physics department at Nikhef implements the research program 23 of the FOM funding agency:

  • "Study of charge-parity violation with the LHCb experiment at CERN".
  • The program runs over the period 1999-2014.
  • The mission is to search for new particles or interactions that affect the observed matter-antimatter asymmetry in nature by making preciosn measurements of B-meson decays.
  • The participating institutes are the Nikhef-FOM, and the Nikhef-VU groups.

In the first half of the FOM programme the group has contributed to:

  • the construction of the LHCb experiment while
  • the data analysisof the HERA-B and Babar experiments.

In the second half of the program the focus is on data taking and physics analysis with the LHCb experiment as well as on preparation of the LHCb upgrade experiment.

  • Programme leader: prof. dr. Marcel Merk
  • Deputy programme leader: dr. Mara Soares

Group Meetings

The BFys group, and the LHCb group at Nikhef have regular meetings, advertised through bfys-physics AT nikhef.nl.

The LHCb group meets usually on Friday mornings, roughly once every two weeks. The agenda can be found under the B-physics category on the Nikhef Indico

There are also regular colloquia, advertised by internal annoucements (intercom) and similarly on the Nikhef Indico

MarcelMerk maintains also a google calendar of other misc events. These calendars are embedded below.
