First Studies of Ion Collimation for the LHC Using BDSIM / Abramov, Andrey (JAI, UK ; Royal Holloway, U. of London) ; Boogert, Stewart (JAI, UK ; Royal Holloway, U. of London) ; Nevay, Laurence (JAI, UK ; Royal Holloway, U. of London) ; Walker, Stuart (JAI, UK ; Royal Holloway, U. of London)
At the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN ion physics runs are performed in addition to proton physics runs. In ion operation the cleaning efficiency of the collimation system is lower than in the case of protons and the ion showering process is more complicated and produces a larger variety of secondary particles. [...]

Construction of a Mobile Irradiation Instrument for the Verification of the CERN LHC Beam Loss Monitoring System / Gudkov, Dmitry (CERN) ; Grishin, Viatcheslav (CERN) ; Veness, Raymond (CERN) ; Zamantzas, Christos (CERN)
The strategy for machine protection and quench prevention of the super-conducting elements of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) is heavily reliant on its beam loss monitoring system. This is one of the most complex and large-scale beam instrumentation systems deployed anywhere in the world. [...]

Development of a Fluorescence Based Gas Sheet Profile Monitor for Use With Electron Lenses: Optical System Design and Preparatory Experiments / Udrea, Serban (Darmstadt, GSI) ; Barrios Diaz, Elena (CERN) ; Chritin, Nicolas (CERN) ; Forck, Peter (Darmstadt, GSI) ; Jones, Owain Rhodri (CERN) ; Magagnin, Paolo (CERN) ; Schneider, Gerhard (CERN) ; Tzoganis, Vasilis (Cockcroft Inst. Accel. Sci. Tech.) ; Veness, Raymond (CERN) ; Welsch, Carsten (Cockcroft Inst. Accel. Sci. Tech.) et al.
A hollow electron lens is presently under study as a possible addition to the collimation system for the high luminosity upgrade of the LHC (HL-LHC), while an electron lens system is also proposed for space charge compensation in the SIS-18 synchrotron for the high intensities at the future FAIR facility. For effective operation, a precise alignment is necessary between the high energy hadron beam and the low energy electron beam. [...]

Performance Assessment of Pre-Series Fast Beam Wire Scanner Prototypes for the Upgrade of the CERN LHC Injector Complex / Sirvent, Jose (CERN) ; Andersson, Patrik (CERN) ; Andreazza, William (CERN) ; Dehning, Bernd (CERN) ; Emery, Jonathan (CERN) ; Garcia, Lionel (CERN) ; Gudkov, Dmitry (CERN) ; Roncarolo, Federico (CERN) ; Tassan-Viol, Jean (CERN) ; Trad, Georges (CERN) et al.
A new generation of beam wire scanner (BWS), for transversal beam profile monitoring, is under development on the framework of the LHC Injector Upgrade project at CERN. Two pre-series prototypes have been built and installed in the Super Proton Synchrotron and Proton Synchrotron Booster, to assess the performance of the upgraded BWS concept. [...]

Digital Signal Processing Techniques to Monitor Bunch-by-Bunch Beam Positions in the LHC for Machine Protection Purposes / Pospisil, Jan (CERN) ; Bjorkqvist, Oskar (CERN) ; Boccardi, Andrea (CERN) ; Wendt, Manfred (CERN)
This paper presents the development of an upgrade to the beam position interlock system for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). The beam orbit at the beam dump kicker is continuously monitored by 16 beam position monitors that are part of the machine protection system. [...]
