LHCb particle detector magnet. Magnet for the LHCb (large hadron collider beauty) particle detector at CERN (the European particle physics laboratory) near Geneva, Switzerland. The detector will be placed around the LHC particle accelerator, a 27- kilometre-long underground ring of superconducting magnets that will guide two counter-rotating proton beams. The beams are accelerated to an energy of 7 tera electron volts (TeV) and then brought to collide head on. This detector will be used to study antimatter produced by the collisions. A pilot run of the LHC is scheduled for summer 2007.
