First years of running for the LHCb calorimeters

Producció científica: Article en revista indexadaArticle de conferènciaAvaluat per experts


The design and construction characteristics of the LHCb calorimeter system are described. Strategies for monitoring and calibration during data taking are detailed in all aspects. Scintillating fibres, plastics and photomultipliers suffer from aging due to radiation damage or high currents; different methods which are used to calibrate the detectors and to recover the initial performances are presented. The performances achieved are illustrated in selected channels of interest for B physics.
