Performance with lead ions of the LHC beam dump system


The LHC beam dump system must function safely with 208Pb82+ ions. The differences with respect to the LHC proton beams are briefly recalled, and the possible areas for performance concerns discussed, in particular the various beam intercepting devices and the beam instrumentation. Energy deposition simulation results for the most critical elements are… (More)
