 Noble liquid calorimetry at the LHC and prospects of its application in future collider experiments / Aleksa, Martin (CERN) Calorimetry is an important measurement technique in experimental particle physics. Although calorimeters based on liquefied noble gases were first proposed 50 years ago, they continue to play an important role in modern particle physics and have substantially contributed to the discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in 2012.. 2021 - 4 p. - Published in : Europhys.

 Machine Detector Interface for FASER / Lefebvre, Helena (JAI, UK) ; Gibson, Stephen (JAI, UK) ; Nevay, Laurie (JAI, UK) /FASER Collaboration The ForwArd Search ExpeRiment (FASER) is a planned small-scale experiment designed for the search of light and weakly-interacting particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The FASER detector will be located along the beam collision axis, $480\,$m downstream from the ATLAS interaction point (IP), in an unused service tunnel.

 Status of VHEE Radiotherapy Related Studies at the CLEAR User Facility at CERN / Corsini, Roberto (CERN) ; Dyks, Luke (CERN ; Oxford U.) ; Farabolini, Wilfrid (CERN ; IRFU, Saclay) ; Gilardi, Antonio (CERN ; Naples U.) ; Korysko, Pierre (Oxford U.) ; Sjobak, Kyrre (Oslo U.) Despite the increase in interest in using Very High Energy Electron (VHEE) beams for cancer radiotherapy many unanswered questions in its development remain. The use of test facilities will be an essential tool used to solve these issues.

 A New Algorithm for Positron Source Parameter Optimisation / Zhao, Yongke (Shandong U. ; CERN) ; Döbert, Steffen (CERN) ; Latina, Andrea (CERN) ; Ma, Lianliang (Shandong U.) In this report, we proposed a new simple and efficient algorithm for positron source parameter optimisation, which is based on iterations of scan of free parameters in the simulation. The new algorithm is fast, simple and convincing since the results can be visually drawn and flexibly tuned and it has an advantage that it can easily handle realistic parametric problems with more than one objective quantities to optimise.

 Energy Deposition Study of the CERN HL-LHC Optics v1.5 in the ATLAS and CMS Insertions / Sabaté-Gilarte, Marta (CERN) ; Cerutti, Francesco (CERN) The High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) is the approved CERN project aiming at further increasing the integrated luminosity of the LHC by a factor 10. As such, it implies a complete redesign of the experimental high-luminosity insertions of ATLAS and CMS.

 Risk of Halo-Induced Magnet Quenches in the HL-LHC Beam Dump Insertion / Potoine, Jean-Baptiste (CERN ; Montpellier U.) ; Apollonio, Andrea (CERN) ; Belli, Eleonora (CERN) ; Bracco, Chiara (CERN) ; Bruce, Roderik (CERN) ; D'Andrea, Marco (CERN) ; García Alía, Ruben (CERN) ; Lechner, Anton (CERN) ; Lerner, Giuseppe (CERN) ; Morales Vigo, Sara (CERN) et al. After the High Luminosity (HL-LHC) upgrade, the LHC will be exposed to a higher risk of magnet quenches during periods of short beam lifetime. Collimators in the extraction region (IR6) assure the protection of magnets against asynchronous beam dumps, but they also intercept a fraction of the beam halo leaking from the betatron cleaning insertion.
