LEIR, CERN's Low Energy Ion Ring, is an essential part of the LHC ion injection chain. In addition, since 2010 the accelerator complex is also delivering ions to the fixed target programme of the SPS North Area. We review the operation of the machine during the recent runs, and we detail the plans for the coming years with Pb and other species.

Performance of the CERN Injector Complex and Transmission Studies into the LHC during the Second Proton-Lead Run
The LHC performance during the proton-lead run in 2016 relied on continuous monitoring and systematic improvement of the beam quality in all the injectors. The beam production and characteristics areExpand
