Kevin McFarland’s (Univ. of Rochester) presentation” What do you mean you don't work at the LHC?" A report from the other frontiers of particle physics,” 5/31/2008


What is luminosity?

L = f n N1 N2/A

f is the revolution frequency (c/27 km)

N: # of bunches each beam in the storage ring. (2808 bunches)

N1,2 is the number of particles in each bunch (billions)

A is the cross section of the beam (40 μm)


THE STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION OF THE PARTS OF THE LHC Detectors

  • 6 areas around circumference that will collect and analyze data

  • ATLAS

  • CMS

  • ALICE

  • LHCb

  • TOTEM (minor study)

  • LHCf (minor study)


Pictorial History of the LHC

19th September 2008 – LHC explosion due to bad soldering joint between two magnets – repairs took 14 months
