Academic Training Lectures | Instrumentation | 12-14 November

Instrumentation (1, 2 & 3) by Rhodri Jones (CERN)


Wednesday 12, Thursday 13 and Friday 14 November
from 11:00 to 12:00
at CERN (40-S2-A01 - Salle Anderson)

Description: The LHC is equipped with a full suite of sophisticated beam instrumentation which has been essential for rapid commissioning, the safe increase in total stored beam power and the understanding of machine optics and accelerator physics phenomena. These lectures will introduce these systems and comment on their contributions to the various stages of beam operation. They will include details on: the beam position system and its use for real-time global orbit feedback; the beam loss system and its role in machine protection; total and bunch by bunch intensity measurements; tune measurement and feedback; diagnostics for transverse beam size measurements, abort gap monitoring and longitudinal density measurements. Issues and problems encountered along the way will also be discussed together with the prospect for future upgrades.
