Measurements of anti-deuterons in collider experiments can help to
reduce systematic uncertainties in indirect searches for dark matter.
Two predominant unknowns in these searches are the production of
secondary anti-deuterons in the cosmos from spallation processes, and
anti-deuteron production from annihilating dark matter.
LHCb is a forward spectrometer on the LHC ring, designed to measure
b-hadron decays from high energy proton-proton collisions. With the
detector's excellent particle identification capabilities, deuteron and
anti-deuteron measurements at LHCb could help to parametrise the two
cosmological processes. Recent studies of (anti-)deuteron identification
at LHCb and the prospects for measuring prompt (anti-)deuterons from
pp-collisions will be presented, as well as a working analysis of
b-baryrons decaying to deuterons.
