Abstract

This book is written by the ATLAS Collaboration at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC), to document and reflect on its more than 25 years of history. It covers all aspects of this global science project at the forefront of particle physics. The historical part recalls first the early stages of discussions in the community leading to the formation of the collaboration in 1992. In a unique approach, the second part documents the evolution from early detector concepts to the final instrument, covering the technical, financial and human aspects. This includes the phases of construction of detector components in the various institutes around the world as well as their installation and commissioning in the underground cavern at CERN.An important part is devoted to the operation of the whole experiment. The book highlights the capabilities and physics accomplishments so far, including the Higgs boson discovery (jointly announced with CMS). It features the various aspects of a broad spectrum of activities needed to arrive at the physics results. The book includes also an outlook to the detector upgrade activities preparing the experiment for the high-luminosity LHC phase of the next decades. Last but not least, it reveals the human aspects of the large ATLAS community working together pursuing common physics goals.The book is aimed at a broad readership with interest in large science projects and their history, as well as in the human endeavour of a worldwide collaboration.

Abstract

This book provides a broad introduction to the physics and technology of the High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC). This new configuration of the LHC is one of the major accelerator projects for the next 20 years and will give new life to the LHC after its first 15-year operation. Not only will it allow more precise measurements of the Higgs boson and of any new particles that might be discovered in the next LHC run, but also extend the mass limit reach for detecting new particles. The HL-LHC is based on the innovative accelerator magnet technologies capable of generating 11–13 Tesla fields, with effectiveness enhanced by use of the new Achromatic Telescopic Squeezing scheme, and other state-of-the-art accelerator technologies, such as superconducting compact RF crab cavities, advanced collimation concepts, and novel power technology based on high temperature superconducting links.The book consists of a series of chapters touching on all issues of technology and design, and each chapter can be read independently. The first few chapters give a summary of the whole project, of the physics motivation and of the accelerator challenges. The subsequent chapters cover the novel technologies, the new configurations of LHC and of its injectors as well as the expected operational implications. Altogether, the book brings the reader to the heart of technologies for the leading edge accelerator and gives insights into next generation hadron colliders.Contents:Foreword (S Myers)Preface (O Brüning and L Rossi)Introduction to the HL-LHC Project (L Rossi and O Brüning)The Physics Landscape of the High Luminosity LHC (M Mangano)The HL-LHC Machine (I Bejar, O Brüning, P Fessia, L Rossi, R Tomas and M Zerlauth)The HL-LHC Accelerator Physics Challenges (S Fartoukh and F Zimmermann)Interface with Experimental Detector in the High Luminosity Run (H Burkhardt)Superconducting Magnet Technology for the Upgrade (E Todesco, G Ambrosio, P Ferracin, J M Rifflet, G L Sabbi, M Segreti, T Nakamoto, R van Weelderen and Q Xu)Crab Cavity Development (R Calaga, E Jensen, G Burt and A Ratti)Powering the Hi-Luminosity Triplets (A Ballarino and J P Burnet)Cryogenics for HL-LHC (L Tavian, K Brodzinski, S Claudet, G Ferlin, U Wagner and R van Weelderen)The "Environmental" Challenges: Impact of Radiation on Machine Components (M Brugger, F Cerutti and L S Esposito)Radiation Protection Considerations (C Adorisio, S Roesler, C Urscheler and H Vincke)Machine Protection with a 700 MJ Beam (T Baer, R Schmidt, J Wenninger, D Wollmann and M Zerlauth)Cleaning Insertions and Collimation Challenges (S Redaelli, R B Appleby, A Bertarelli, R Bruce, J M Jowett, A Lechner and R Losito)Long-Range Beam–Beam Compensation Using Wires (F Zimmermann and H Schmickler)Impedance and Component Heating (E Métral, F Caspers, N Mounet, T Pieloni and B Salvant)Challenges and Plans for the Proton Injectors (R Garoby)New Injectors: The Linac4 Project and the New H– Source (J Lettry and M Vretenar)Challenges and Plans for the Ion Injectors (D Manglunki)Challenges and Plans for Injection and Beam Dump (M Barnes, B Goddard, V Mertens and J Uythoven)Beam Instrumentation and Diagnostics for the LHC Upgrade (E Bravin, B Dehning, R Jones and T Lefevre)Heavy-Ion Operation of HL-LHC (J M Jowett, M Schaumann and R Versteegen)Implications for Operations (G Arduini, M Lamont, T Pieloni and G Rumolo)Readership: Researchers and graduates in accelerator physics and engineering.
