The LHCb experiment at CERN is nearing completion and is expected to begin operation in 2008. It will make precision measurements of Charge-Parity in the B meson system. Two Ring Imaging Cherenkov detectors provide excellent charged particle recognition, particularly in their separation of kaons and pions. This thesis outlines the production and testing of Hybrid Photon Detectors, used to measure Cherenkov light in the Ring Imaging Cherenkov detectors. We also report an analysis of the rare decay Bos -> ØØ.
