Local Chromatic Correction Scheme and Crab-waist Collisions for an Ultra-low Beta* at the Lhc∗

Abstract

We discuss potential merits and the parameter range of interest for a possible crab-waist collision scheme at the LHC, and report preliminary optics studies of a local chromatic correction scheme with flat beams (β∗ x β∗ y ), which could boost the LHC luminosity by about an order of magnitude and would also allow for crab-waist collisions.
