Description

Its forward acceptance puts the LHCb in a unique position at the LHC to measure QCD phenomena at large rapidities and low transverse momenta, where theoretical models often fail to describe the data accurately. We present new exclusive production studies of ϒ mesons. A first look at the new Run II data and the performance of the new HERSCHEL forward counters may be presented.
