LHCb: with petabytes of flavour data to new discoveries

Event Date: December 13, 2018 16:15


The european lab CERN in Geneva hosts with the Large Hadron Collider and its experiments todays most advanced particle accelerator and detectors. The dataset generated is about 1PB per second.

The talk focusses on the LHCb experiment, one of the four big experiments at the LHC. The real time data processing, the trigger system, is discussed as well hints to possible physics discoveries that are currently seen in the data.



Johannes Albrecht received his PhD from Heidelberg University in 2009 and moved then to CERN as senior research fellow. From 2013 he is based at TU Dortmund, first as Emmy-Noether group leader and since 2016 with a research group awarded by the European research council (ERC starting grant).

His research interest is experimental particle physics, in the past decade of running of the LHCb experiment at CERN, he performed many physics measurements and is currently responsible for the physics as deputy physics coordinator. His second research focus is on event triggering, where petabytes of data are reconstructed and filtered in real time on a dedicated Event Filter Farm with currently 27000 physical cores.
