 Impact of flux jumps in future colliders / Coello de Portugal, J (CERN) ; Tomás, R (CERN) ; Fiscarelli, L (CERN) ; Gamba, D (CERN) ; Martino, M (CERN) Type-II superconductors, like the Nb3Sn used in the new HL–LHC quadrupole triplet and 11 T dipoles or FCC dipoles, are known to show an unstable behavior during magnetic-field ramps. This paper presents an analysis of the possible effects on the beam dynamics of this behavior of the magnets, with a focus on emittance blow-up.. 2020 - 9 p. - Published in : Phys. Rev. Accel.

 Calorimeters for the FCC-hh / Neubuser, Coralie (CERN) ; Aleksa, Martin (CERN) ; Henriques Correia, Ana Maria (CERN) ; Faltova, Jana (Charles University (CZ)) ; Selvaggi, Michele (CERN) ; Helsens, Clement (CERN) ; Zaborowska, Anna (CERN) ; Allport, Philip Patrick (University of Birmingham (GB)) ; Bosley, Robert Ross (University of Birmingham (GB)) ; Kieseler, Jan (CERN) et al. The future proton-proton collider (FCC-hh) will deliver collisions at a center of mass energy up to \sqrtsfcc\ at an unprecedented instantaneous luminosity of \instlumi, resulting in extremely challenging radiation and luminosity conditions. By delivering an integrated luminosity of few tens of \invab, the FCC-hh will provide an unrivalled discovery potential for new physics.

 Higgs Physics Potential of FCC-hh Standalone / Mangano, Michelangelo (CERN) We complement the Higgs studies presented in the FCC-hh CDR with a preliminary assessment of the reach for the couplings to the W boson, and to the bottom and tau fermions..

 Physics potential of a low-energy FCC-hh / Mangano, Michelangelo (CERN) We present an early assessment of the physics reach of a pp collider at $\sqrt{S}=37.5$~TeV, with 15\,\iab of integrated luminosity. We select a few topics, focusing on the key 100~TeV deliverables documented in the FCC CDR, namely the searches at high mass, the search for WIMP dark matter candidates, the signatures for a strong first order EW phase transition, and the Higgs precision measurements..
