The production of χ$_{b}$ mesons in proton-proton collisions is studied using a data sample collected by the LHCb detector, at centre-of-mass energies of $ \sqrt{s} $ =7 and 8 TeV and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0 fb$^{−1}$. The χ$_{b}$ mesons are identified through their decays to ϒ(1S)γ and ϒ(2S)γ using photons that converted to e$^{+}$ e$^{−}$ pairs in the detector. The relative prompt production rate of χ$_{b1}$(1P) and χ$_{b2}$(1P) mesons is measured as a function of the ϒ(1S) transverse momentum in the χ$_{b}$ rapidity range 2.0 < y <4.5. A precise measurement of the χ$_{b}$ (3P) mass is also performed. Assuming a mass splitting between the χ$_{b1}$(3P) and the χ$_{b2}$(3P) states of 10.5 MeV/c$^{2}$, the measured mass of the χ$_{b1}$(3P) meson is

Relative production cross section of $\chi_{b2}(1P)$ to $\chi_{b1}(1P)$ mesons in $p_T$ bins of $\Upsilon(1S)$ meson. The first uncertainty is statistical, the second is systematic and the third is due to the uncertainty on the branching fractions.
