EPJ Techniques and Instrumentation Highlight - Calibration samples to measure particle identification performance in the LHCb experiment

Deep underground in the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, beams of protons travel around in circles at almost the speed of light before they are collided head-on. These high-energy collisions produce large numbers of tiny, short-lived particles that quickly decay into lighter, more stable particles. Investigating these particle decays allows physicists to catch a glimpse of the early history of the universe. In new work published in EPJ Techniques and Instrumentation, Marianna Fontana and Donal Hill describe the method to create calibration samples that help determine the accuracy of the detector in the Large Hadron Collider beauty experiment in identifying different particles.

I thank you very much for all suggestion and help during the various steps of the procedure and contacts regarding the preparation of documents, articles and information for the publication of the DHF 2014 Conference proceedings in EPJ Web of Conferences vol.96 (2015) of the EDP sciences publisher. It is the second time in the last two years that we decided to choose your journal for the proceedings publication of our conference and symposium, and we are glad for the experience had with your staff and also for the importance of your journal in order to support our conferences and for the dissemination of our scientific activity. I am also very glad for the prompt publication and it is an honour for our organization to have such a publication on your journal.
