Abstract (data abstract)
CERN-LHC. A study of $\chi_{b}$ meson production at LHCb is performed on proton-proton collision data, corresponding to 3.0 fb$^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity collected at centre-of-mass energies $\sqrt{s}=$7 and 8 TeV. The fraction of $\Upsilon(nS)$ mesons originating from $\chi_{b}$ decays is measured as a function of the $\Upsilon$ transverse momentum in the rapidity range $2.0 < y^{\Upsilon} < 4.5$. The radiative transition of the $\chi_{b}(3P)$ meson to $\Upsilon(3S)$ is observed for the first time. The $\chi_{b1}(3P)$ mass is determined to be $m_{\chi_{b1}(3P)} = 10511.3 \pm 1.7 \pm 2.5$ MeV/$c^2$, where the first uncertainty is statistical and the second is systematic.
