EPS-HEP / Rare B decays at LHCb (353+354)

Radiative b-hadron decays are sensitive probes of New Physics through the study of branching fractions, CP asymmetries and measurements of the polarisation of the photon emitted in the decay. During Run-1 of the LHC, the LHCb experiment has collected large samples of radiative b-hadron decays. We present here the latest LHCb measurements, which help constrain the size of right-handed currents in extensions of the Standard Model. merged with Very rare decays at LHCb Flavour-changing neutral-current processes are loop-suppressed in the Standard Model. Since new particles in SM extensions can give significant contributions, they allow for sensitive searches for phenomena beyond the SM. Very rare decays of b-hadrons that are highly suppressed in the SM are particularly clean probes. The LHCb experiment is designed for the study of b-hadron decays and ideally suited for the analysis of very rare decays due to its high trigger efficiency, as well as excellent tracking and particle identification performance. Recent results from the LHCb experiment on very rare decays are presented.
