The HL-LHC is shaping up to be a worthy successor to the LHC, which is having another spectacular year
The final days of the LHC proton physics Run II are here
On 24 October, the LHC Operations team flipped the switch in the LHC island of the CCC to dump the last proton production fill of Run 2
The LHC’s proton run came to an end on Wednesday 24 October with an excellent result of 160 fb-1 of data accumulated since the start of 2015
The LHC operators hope to break last year’s record for total proton-proton collisions delivered to the experiments
Beams were circulating in the LHC by 30 March (five days in advance!), and everything is looking good for a strong final year of LHC Run II.
The LHC’s 2017 proton run has ended with record luminosity. The special runs will now take place before the winter shutdown.
The Large Hadron Collider has established a new record of luminosity, delivering a huge amount of data to its experiments
The LHC has been accelerating more and more protons, and to allow the machine to reach its maximum intensity, it will undergo a thorough scrubbing.
Adjustments to the thousands of pieces of equipment making up the LHC are ongoing before data taking can start for 2017
