LHCb has the unique capability to operate in fixed-target mode to study collisions of the LHC beams on fixed targets. In Run3, the internal gas target is going to be upgraded to allow for a wider selection of target gas species and a significant increase of the rates of fixed-target collisions by up to two orders of magnitude. Along with significant data acquisition and tracking upgrades, the SMOG2 system greatly enhances the reach of LHCb’s heavy ion program.
