Early Running Experience with the LHCb detector

Speaker

Karol Hennessy (Department of Physics-Oliver Lodge Laboratory-University of Live)

Description

The LHC 7TeV Physics programme started at the end of March 2010. This talk highlights the experiences of running the LHCb detector with early pp-collisions from the LHC. An overview of the operation of the detector with the first 100nb^-1 will be given, and the challenge of running the detector smoothly in the initial data taking stages. Focus will be given to the performance of the hardware and the interplay between LHCb and the machine. We highlight our successes, and report on the progress made in solving outstanding subdetector issues.
