Abstract:
The Large Hadron Collider at CERN will store and collide proton and ion beams with unprecedented intensities and destructive potential. Small fractions of the beam can be lost during operation. These losses require highly efficient and robust collimation such that the accelerator is protected against quenches and damage. The loss-induced challenges for the LHC are reviewed and the collimation system is described. Special focus is put on future research requirements for collimation upgrades and on opportunities for inter-laboratory collaborations.
