 Optimisation of Slow Extraction and Beam Delivery from Synchrotrons / Arrutia Sota, Pablo Andreas (University of Oxford (GB)) ; Fraser, Matthew Alexander (CERN) ; Gibson, Stephen (University of London (GB)) Third-integer slow extraction is a commonly used extraction technique for a variety of ap- plications where long and stable spills are needed. The process of extracting, transporting and even splitting the beam before reaching the user inevitably result in beam loss.

 Development of an LHC model in BDSIM to study collimation cleaning and beam-induced backgrounds at ATLAS / Walker, Stuart Derek (University of London (GB)) The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is at the frontier of high energy physics. At 27 km in circumference and operating at the highest achieved energy to date at 6.5 TeV, it is reliant on cold superconducting magnets throughout the machine to steer and control the beam.

 Production of mass separated $^{11}$C beams for PET-aided hadron therapy / Stegemann, Simon Thomas (CERN) Ever since the first discovery of an artificially-generated radionuclide, the production of radioisotopes and radioactive ion beams has been an essential tool in nuclear physics research for the study of the atomic nucleus and its properties. Furthermore, the very same discovery is considered as one of the cornerstones in nuclear medicine, where radioisotopes are exploited for the diagnosis and therapy of cancer [...] CERN-THESIS-2020-257.- Fulltext: PDF; External link: Approve this document (restricted)

 A new beam synchronous processing architecture with a fixed frequency processing clock. Application to transient beam loading compensation in the CERN SPS machine / Galindo Guarch, F Javier (Barcelona, Polytechnic U. ; CERN) ; Baudrenghien, Philippe (CERN) ; Moreno Arostegui, J Manuel (Barcelona, Polytechnic U.) New projects being implemented or planned at CERN, such as the LHC Injectors Upgrade (LIU), the High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) or the Future Circular Collider (FCC), motivate the change of several architectural paradigms in the Low Level RF systems (LLRF). In the upgraded Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) LLRF, the distribution of RF, the revolution frequency, settings and synchronization timings will rely on a deterministic link, the White Rabbit (WR), exploiting a distributed topology.

 Dynamic simulations of the HL-LHC cryogenic system during beam operation / Bradu, B (CERN) This paper presents a set of dynamic simulations performed on the future High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) cryogenic system. The objectives of these simulations are to provide main pressure, temperature and flow transients over the cryogenic distribution system around the collision points 1 and 5 during the forecast beam operation.
