MD 754: Instability Threshold for Train with 25ns Spacing / Carver, Lee Robert (CERN) ; Astapovych, Daria ; Biancacci, Nicolo (CERN) ; Iadarola, Giovanni (CERN) ; Levens, Tom (University of Glasgow (GB)) ; Metral, Elias (CERN) ; Salvant, Benoit (CERN) ; Wang, Na
Measurements made since the beginning of run II at 6.5 TeV have shown that there is a large discrepancy in the instability thresholds between single bunches and trains of 72 bunches with 25ns spacing, whereas the same result is expect for pure impedance-induced instabilities. [...]

Collimation Cleaning at the LHC with Advanced Secondary Collimator Materials / Quaranta, Elena (CERN) ; Bruce, Roderik (CERN) ; Mereghetti, Alessio (CERN) ; Redaelli, Stefano (CERN) ; Rossi, A (CERN)
The LHC collimation system must ensure efficient beam halo cleaning in all machine conditions. The first run in 2010-2013 showed that the LHC performance may be limited by collimator material-related concerns, such as the contribution from the present carbon-based secondary collimators to the machine impedance and, consequently, to the beam instability. [...]

FPC and Hi-Pass Filter HOM Coupler Design for the RF Dipole Crab Cavity for the LHC HiLumi Upgrade / Li, Z (SLAC) ; Delayen, Jean Roger (Old Dominion U.) ; De Silva, S U (Old Dominion U.) ; Park, HyeKyoung (Old Dominion U.) ; Olave, R G (Old Dominion U.) /SLAC, ODU Collaboration
A 400-MHz compact RF dipole (RFD) crab cavity design was jointly developed by Old Dominion University and SLAC under the support of US LARP program for the LHC HiLumi upgrade. The RFD cavity design is consisted of a rounded-square tank and two ridged deflecting poles, operating with a TE11-like dipole mode, which is the lowest mode of the cavity. [...]
