This report presents a summary of the Achromatic Telescopic Squeezing (ATS) scheme related activities which took place in 2016, where a new generation of ATS pre-squeezed and telescopic optics was successfully probed, namely: (i) down to a of 10 cm with pilot bunches, and (ii) with more emphasis at intermediate values of 40 cm or 33 cm where collisions were established with nominal bunches, the triplet aperture was measured and collimation measurements with pre-squeezed or moderately telescopic ATS optics were conducted..

Measured and simulated heavy-ion beam loss patterns at the CERN Large Hadron Collider / Hermes, P D (CERN ; Munster U.) ; Bruce, R (CERN) ; Jowett, J M (CERN) ; Redaelli, S (CERN) ; Salvachua Ferrando, B (CERN) ; Valentino, G (CERN) ; Wollmann, D (CERN)
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN pushes forward to new regimes in terms of beam energy and intensity. In view of the combination of very energetic and intense beams together with sensitive machine components, in particular the superconducting magnets, the LHC is equipped with a collimation system to provide protection and intercept uncontrolled beam losses.
