Nuclear Physics Seminar

"Physics with heavy ions and exotic hadrons at LHCb"

Presented by Matt Durham, Los Alamos National Lab

Tuesday, January 7, 2020, 11:00 am — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The LHCb Experiment has a growing program dedicated to heavy ion physics. With full tracking, particle ID, and calorimetry capabilities over the forward rapidity interval 2 < y < 5, LHCb covers a unique kinematic range at the LHC. This allows LHCb to fully reconstruct heavy quark states that are sensitive to the very low x structure of nucleons, as well as characterize exotic states that may be composed of more than three valence quarks. This talk will discuss recent results from the LHCb heavy ion program, with a focus on using heavy ion data and techniques to probe the structure of exotic hadrons.
