Fixed-target physics with the LHCb experiment
Since year 2013, the LHCb experiment started a fixed-target physics program using collisions between the LHC beams and gas injected in the LHC beam pipe at the LHCb interaction point. I will describe the technical challenges for operating the experiment under these special conditions and the physics results obtained with the first phase of this program. The fixed-target setup is being upgraded for the Run 3 of the experiment, which will start in 2022. I will present the improvements expected and the physics reach brought by this upgrade.
Students are cordially invited.
