Congratulations LHCb!!!

Just a quick post today to explain this LHC status from last night:

What was this about you ask? As I’ve mentioned previously, the target instantaneous luminosity for LHCb is \(2 \times 10^{32} cm^{-2} s^{-1}\) to \(3 \times 10^{32} cm^{-2} s^{-1}\).

LHCb started taking data within this target instantaneous luminosity on the 1st of May with 756 colliding bunches corresponding to an instantaneous luminosity of \(2.15 \times 10^{32} cm^{-2} s^{-1}\). Last night the experiment moved into unknown territory, collecting data at an instantaneous luminosity of \(3 \times 10^{32} cm^{-2} s^{-1}\).

Experts have been carefully monitoring the detector behaviour and data quality, but so far it would seem that everything is performing well. Congratulations are indeed in order. 🙂
