Large Hadron Collider beauty. Part of the vertex detector (VELO) of the LHC beauty (LHCb) experiment of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland. The LHC is the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator. It is designed to create high energy substances, such as quark-gluon plasma, thought to exist very early in the universe's history. The LHCb experiment is one of seven particle physics detector experiments at the LHC and is a specialized b-physics experiment, designed to measure the parameters of CP violation in the interactions of b-hadrons (heavy particles containing a bottom quark). VELO is used to measure the particle trajectories close to the interaction point in order to precisely separate primary and secondary vertices.
