Goals – stated by J. Strait (2002)

  • Extend and improve the performance of the LHC so as to maximize its scientific output in support of US-CMS and US-ATLAS

  • Maintain and develop the US labs capabilities so that the US can be the leader in the next generation of hadron colliders.

  • Serve as a vehicle for US accelerator physicists to pursue their research

  • Train future generations of accelerator physicists.

  • It is the next step in international cooperation on large accelerators.

    Fermilab has been appointed the “Host Laboratory” to lead this program.

Us larp institutions

Two main areas:

  • High field magnets

  • Accelerator systems

    Accelerator Physics, Instrumentation, Collimation, Commissioning (beam & hardware)

  • High field magnets: BNL, FNAL, LBL

  • Accelerator Physics: BNL, FNAL, LBL

  • Instrumentation: BNL, FNAL, LBL, UT Austin

  • Collimation: SLAC

  • Commissioning: BNL, FNAL, LBL

Us larp goals

  • Accelerator Physics and Experiments

    - understand performance limitations of current IRs and develop new designs

    - Beam dynamics calculations and related experiments

  • Develop high performance magnets for new higher luminosity IRs

    - large-aperture, high gradient quadrupoles using Nb3Sn

    - high field beam separation dipoles and strong correctors

  • Develop advanced beam diagnostics and instrumentation

    - luminosity monitor, tune feedback, Schottky monitor, rotatable collimators

    - other systems as needed for improving LHC performance

  • Commissioning

    - participate in the sector test and LHC beam commissioning

    - commission hardware delivered by the US

Luminosity and ir upgrade
Luminosity and IR upgrade

J. Strait

  • An IR upgrade is a straightforward way to increase the luminosity – by a factor of 2-3

  • It must also deal with higher beam currents and 10 times larger debris power at L=1035cm-2s-1

  • Several optics design issues

  • ~50% of LARP effort is in IR magnet design

A luminosity upgrade will be required

around ~2015 to keep the LHC physics

program productive.

Quadrupoles 1 st option
Quadrupoles 1st option


  • Allows smaller β*, minimizes aberrations.

  • Lower accumulation of charged particle debris from the IP.

  • Operational experience from the first years of running.


  • More parasitic beam-beam interactions.

  • Crossing angle has to increase as 1/√β*

  • IR correction systems act on both beams simultaneously

Baseline Design

Dipoles 1 st 2 options
Dipoles 1st – 2 options


  • Fewer parasitic interactions.

  • Correction systems act on single beams.

  • No feed-down effects in the quads


  • Large energy deposition in the


  • Beta functions are larger →

    increases aberrations.

  • Longer R&D time for dipoles

  • Longer commissioning time

    after the upgrade.

Ir design issues luminosity reach
IR Design Issues→ Luminosity Reach

  • Requirements on magnet fields and apertures

  • Optically matched designs at all stages

  • Energy deposition

  • Beam-beam interactions

  • Chromaticity and non-linear correctors, field quality

  • Dispersion correction

  • Susceptibility to noise, misalignment, ground motion; emittance growth

  • Closest approach of magnets to the IP (L*)

  • Impact of Nb3Sn magnets, e.g flux jumps

  • R&D time required to develop the most critical hardware and to integrate it in the LHC

  • ….. All need to be considered in defining the luminosity reach

Towards a reference baseline design
Towards a Reference Baseline Design

Proposal by F. Ruggiero (CERN)

  • “Define a Baseline, i.e. a forward looking configuration which we are reasonably confident can achieve the required LHC luminosity performance and can be used to give an accurate cost estimate by mid-end 2006 in a Reference Design Report

  • Identify Alternative Configurations

  • Identify R&D to

    - support the baseline

    - develop the alternatives”

Separately, the LARP magnet program has been tasked to

deliver a working prototype of a Nb3Sn quadrupole by 2009.

Long range interactions
Long-range interactions

  • Long-range beam-beam interactions are expected to affect LHC performance – based on Tevatron observations and LHC simulations

  • Wire compensator is proposed to mitigate their impact

  • RHIC has a 2 ring layout like the LHC – can be used to test the principle

Difference in kicks between a round beam and a wire < 1% beyond 3 sigma

Location of wire compensators

Installation in Summer 2006

To be installed if required to improve


Feasibility would determine upgrade path

Rhic beam beam experiments
RHIC beam-beam experiments

  • Motivation for experiments: Test of wire compensation in 2007

    Determine if a single parasitic causes beam losses that need to be compensated

    Experiments in 2005 and 2006

    Remote participation at FNAL via logbook

  • Motivation for simulations: Tests and improvements of codes, predictions of observations in 2006 and of wire compensation

    Several groups: FNAL, SLAC, LBL, University of Kansas

    (coordinated at FNAL)


Beam beam experiments and simulations 2006
Beam-beam Experiments and Simulations (2006)

Simulated lifetimes show a linear dependence on the beam separation

FNAL Simulations

  • Beam lifetime responds to vertical separation but vertical separation  4σ (1st study – April 5th, 2006)

  • 4 studies in all (April-May) to explore larger separations and tune space

  • Analysis to find dependence on beam separation in progress

Energy deposition1
Energy deposition

  • Primary source of radiation in the IR magnets: pp collisions, ~ Luminosity

    Tevatron: debris power ~ 2 W

    LHC at 1035cm-2s-1, debris power ~ 9kW

  • Energy deposition is viewed as the major constraint on the IR upgrade

    Could be key in deciding between quads first or dipoles first.

  • Other sources include operational beam losses (e.g. beam gas scattering) and accidental losses (e.g. misfiring of abort kickers)

Energy deposition issues constraints
Energy Deposition Issues & Constraints

  • Quench stability→ Peak power density

    Require Epeak to be below the quench limit by a factor of 3

  • Magnet lifetime → peak radiation dose and lifetime limits for various materials

    Baseline LHC: expect lifetime ~ 7 years for IR magnets

    Upgrade LHC: requires new radiation hard materials

  • Dynamic heat loads → Power dissipation and cryogenic implications

    Require heat load < 10 W/m

  • Residual dose rates → hands on maintenance

    Require residual dose rates < 0.1 mSv/hr

  • Dedicated system of charged particle and neutral absorbers in the IRs

Energy deposition open mid plane dipole
Energy Deposition: Open Mid-plane Dipole

  • ED issues constrain the dipole design to have no coils in the mid-plane

  • Εpeakin SC coils ~0.4mW/g, below the quench limit

  • Estimated lifetime based on displacements per atom is ~10 years

  • Dipole design will require significant R&D, further LARP design work postponed

Quadrupole first design
Quadrupole first design

  • Without mitigation, Epeak > 4 mW/g. Target value is ~1.7mW/g

  • Mitigation by thick inner liner

  • Stainless steel liners are not adequate

  • Thick Tungsten-Rhenium liner reduces

    Epeak ~ 1.2 mW/g

I. Rakhno

Tertiary collimators
Tertiary Collimators

  • Designed to protect the detector and IR components from operational and accidental beam losses

Similar collimator used at A48

in the Tevatron to protect

against abort kicker misfire

For the LHC propose 1m long

Lhc injector in the lhc tunnel
LHC Injector in the LHC tunnel

  • Injector will accelerate beams from 0.45TeV to ~1.5TeV

    - Field quality of LHC better at 1.5GeV

    - Space charge effects lower, may allow

    higher intensity bunches

    - Could allow easier transition to LHC doubler

  • The injector will be installed in the LHC tunnel during scheduled LHC shutdowns

  • Return to the standard SPS injection into the LHC will be possible

  • The main magnets will be the type of super-ferric combined function magnets proposed for the VLHC I.

    • Control the tune during the acceleration ramp to avoid beam loss

    • Control the chromaticity during the snapback at start of ramp

    • PLL method: excite the beam close to the tune and observe the resonant beam transfer function

    • Then used in a feedback system to regulate the quadrupole current and tune

    Phase Modulation Off

    • The Direct Diode Detection method (3D BBQ) from CERN implemented in the Tevatron – complements tune measurements from the Schottky monitors. More sensitive than the Schottky.

    • This 3D BBQ has been used to measure the chromaticity with a method due to D. McGinnis.

    • Interest in implementing this method at RHIC and the SPS
