Description

Measurements for open charm hadron production and spectroscopy at LHCb, and future prospects are presented. The LHCb detector is designed for the observation of heavy flavour decays with a fully instrumented forward coverage that is unique among the LHC experiments. These features, with the prolific charm production in sqrt(s)=7 TeV proton-proton collisions, make LHCb ideally suited to perform precise measurements of charm production and spectroscopy that test QCD in this new energy regime.
