LHC Injectors Upgrade Project: Towards New Territory Beam Parameters

04.12.2019 11:15 – 12:15

The LHC Injectors Upgrade (LIU) project aims at increasing the intensity and brightness in the LHC injectors in order to match the challenging requirements of the High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) project, while ensuring high availability and reliable operation of the injectors complex well into the HL-LHC era. This requires extensive hardware modifications and new beam dynamics solutions in the entire LHC proton and ion injection chains: the new Linac4, the Proton Synchrotron Booster (PSB), the Proton Synchrotron (PS), the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS), together with the ion PS injectors (the Linac3 and the Low Energy Ion Ring (LEIR)). All hardware modifications are being implemented during the 2019-2020 CERN accelerators shutdown. A view on the future operation of the LHC injectors is also presented, highlighting the benefits in terms of beam parameters for both the LHC beams and those for fixed target physics.
