In the light of different running scenarios potential source improvements will be discussed (e.g. one month every year versus two month every other year and impact of the different running options [e.g. an extended ion run] on the source). As the oven refills cause most of the down time the oven design and refilling strategies will be presented. A test stand for off-line developments will be taken into account. Also the implications on the necessary manpower for extended runs will be discussed.

PERFORMANCE OF THE INJECTORS WITH IONS AFTER LS1
We review the performance of the ion injector chain at the light of the improvements which will take place during LS1, and we derive the expected luminosity gain for Pb-Pb and p-Pb collisions in theExpand
Challenges and Plans for the Ion Injectors
With this high brightness beam, a Pb–Pb run at 7Z TeV performed with the current filling scheme, described in Section 2.2 below, would deliver a peak luminosity of 27 2 1 2.3 10 cm s    . SinceExpand

Ions for LHC: performance of the injector chain
The first LHC Pb ion run took place at 1.38 A TeV/c per beam in autumn 2010. After a short period of runningin, the injector chain was able to fill the collider with up to 137 bunches per ring, withExpand
Operation of the GTS-LHC Source for the Hadron Injector at CERN
The GTS-LHC ion source, designed and build by CEA Grenoble, was installed and commissioned at CERN in 2005. Since than the source has delivered oxygen and lead ion beams (O 4+ and Pb 27+ from theExpand
