Description
The LHCb detector is a spectrometer with acceptance covering the forward pseudorapidity region 2 <eta<5. It is designed primarily to study the properties of heavy-flavoured hadrons produced in pp collisions at the LHC. By studying rare decays and CP-violation effects, LHCb can make precise tests of the Standard Model and search for new physics hints. The status of the experiment and a selection of the LHCb measurements will be presented, including the latest results from the 1/fb data sample collected in 2011.
