Aaij, R. et al. (2010) Measurement of σ(pp → bb̅ X) at √s=7  TeV in the forward region. Physics Letters B, 694 (3). pp. 209-216. ISSN 0370-2693

Decays of b hadrons into final states containing a D0 meson and a muon are used to measure the production cross-section in proton–proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV at the LHC. In the pseudorapidity interval 2<η<6 and integrated over all transverse momenta we find that the average cross-section to produce b-flavoured or -flavoured hadrons is (75.3±5.4±13.0) μb.
