Report from LHC MD 3312: Replicating HL-LHC DA / Dilly, Joschua Werner (Humboldt University of Berlin (DE)) ; Albert, Markus (CERN) ; Carlier, Felix Simon (CERN) ; Coello De Portugal - Martinez Vazquez, Jaime Maria ; Dalena, Barbara (Université Paris-Saclay (FR)) ; Fol, Elena (CERN) ; Hofer, Michael (CERN) ; Maclean, Ewen Hamish (CERN) ; Malina, Lukas ; Persson, Tobias Hakan Bjorn (CERN) et al.
During MD3312 on the 30.10.2018 the non-linear conditions in the insertion regions of the planned HL-LHC were replicated to our best knowledge and within the capabilities of the hardware currently available in the LHC: A flat ATS-optics scheme of beta* = 15cm / 60cm in IP1 and IP5 was applied as well as sextupole, octupole and (normal) dodecapole errors were introduced into the machine via the corrector magnets in the interaction regions.

Prospects for beam-based study of dodecapole nonlinearities in the CERN High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider / Maclean, Ewen Hamish (CERN) ; Carlier, Felix Simon (CERN) ; Dilly, Joschua Werner (Humboldt University of Berlin (DE)) ; Giovannozzi, Massimo (CERN) ; Tomas Garcia, Rogelio (CERN)
Nonlinear magnetic errors in low-β insertions can have a significant impact on the beam-dynamics of a collider such as the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and its luminosity upgrade (HL-LHC). Indeed, correction of sextupole and octupole magnetic errors in LHC experimental insertions has yielded clear operational benefits in recent years. [...]
