During 2012 the LHC was operating at 4TeV with beta star at ATLAS and CMS interaction points of 0.6 m. During dedicated machine studies the nominal LHC optics was also setup with beta star of 0.4 m. A huge effort was put into the optics commissioning leading to a record low peak beta-beating of around 7%. We describe the correction procedures and discuss the measurement results. LINEAR OPTICS CORRECTION LHC must have extremely good control of the optics not only due to the huge power of the… CONTINUE READING
