Starting for beam commissioning up to 3.5 TeV and 32 MJ stored energy!
New Machine Protection test and result page is put up.
SixTrack Simulations for 3.5TeV
The full phase 1 collimation system (4 stage cleaning & protection) is set up for beam cleaning at 450 GeV. Efficiency reaches up to 99.99% with stored beam! Used through injection, ramp and 1.18 TeV!
