Transverse momentum distribution and nuclear modification factor of forward neutral pion in proton–lead collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$= 5.02 TeV / LHCf Collaboration
The transverse momentum ($p_\text{T}$) distribution for inclusive neutral pions in the very forward rapidity region has been measured, with the Large Hadron Collider forward detector (LHCf), in proton--lead collisions at nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energies of $\sqrt{s_{NN}} = 5.02$TeV at the LHC. The $p_\text{T}$ spectra obtained in the rapidity range $-11.0 < y_\text{lab} < -8.9$ and $0 < p_\text{T} < 0.6$GeV (in the detector reference frame) show a strong suppression of the production of neutral pions after taking into account ultra-peripheral collisions.

LHCf detector performance during the 2009-2010 LHC run / LHCf collaboration
LHCf has successfully completed the operation during the LHC 2009–2010 period and the detectors were removed in July 2010. The event trigger, data analysis and background have been intensively studied in order to derive inclusive single photon and 0 spectra. [...]

Measurement of forward neutral pion transverse momentum spectra for $\sqrt{s}$ = 7TeV proton-proton collisions at LHC / LHCf Collaboration
The inclusive production rate of neutral pions in the rapidity range greater than $y=8.9$ has been measured by the Large Hadron Collider forward (LHCf) experiment during LHC $\sqrt{s}=7$\,TeV proton-proton collision operation in early 2010. This paper presents the transverse momentum spectra of the neutral pions. [...]

In the Large Hadron Collider forward (LHCf) experiment, the luminosity is determined with the counting rates of detectors called Front Counter. During the LHCf physics operation at √s = 7 TeV in 2010, two series of calibration run in the conversion factors from the counting rate to the luminosity were carried out on 26th of April and 9th of May.

Gd2SiO5 (GSO) scintillator has very excellent radiation resistance, a fast decay time and a large light yield. Because of these features, GSO scintillator is a suitable material for high radiation environment experiments such as those encountered at high energy accelerators. [...]

Measurement of zero degree inclusive photon energy spectra for $\sqrt{s}$= 900 GeV proton-proton collisions at LHC / LHCf collaboration
The inclusive photon energy spectra measured by the Large Hadron Collider forward (LHCf) experiment in the very forward region of LHC proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=$ 900 GeV are reported. The results from the analysis of 0.30 $\mathrm{nb^{-1}}$ of data collected in May 2010 in the two pseudorapidity regions of $\eta > 10.15$ and $8.77 < \eta < 9.46$ are compared with the predictions of the hadronic interaction models DPMJET 3.04, EPOS 1.99, PYTHIA 8.145, QGSJET I -.1em I-03 and SIBYLL 2.1, which are widely used in ultra-high-energy cosmic-ray experiments.

Measurement of zero degree single photon energy spectra for $\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV proton-proton collisions at LHC / LHCf Collaboration
In early 2010, the Large Hadron Collider forward (LHCf) experiment measured very forward neutral particle spectra in LHC proton-proton collisions. From a limited data set taken under the best beam conditions (low beam-gas background and low occurance of pile-up events), the single photon spectra at $\sqrt{s}$ = 7 TeV and pseudo-rapidity ($\eta$) ranges from 8.81 to 8.99 and from 10.94 to infinity were obtained for the first time and are reported in this paper.
