Abstract: We introduce the Calabi-Yau (CY) objects in a Hom-finite Krull-Schmidt triangulated $ k$-category, and notice that the structure of the minimal, consequently all the CY objects, can be described. The relation between indecomposable CY objects and Auslander-Reiten triangles is provided. Finally we classify all the CY modules of self-injective Nakayama algebras, determining in this way the self-injective Nakayama algebras admitting indecomposable CY modules.
