CARE-HHH-APD mini-Workshop on

Crystal Channeling for Large Colliders :

Machine and Physics Applications

Dedicated to the memory of
Francesco Ruggiero (1957-2007)

CERN, 22 23 March 2007

 

This workshop is organized by the "Accelerator Physics and synchrotron Design" (APD) collaboration of the CARE-HHH European Network on "High Energy High Intensity Hadron Beams". Also a contribution to the organization of the Workshop is provided through the CERN INTAS Collaborative project on Crystal Channeling 2006-2008 and INFN. The goals of the workshop are to discuss if a new crystal collimation procedure assisted by bent crystals and suited for collimation during the ultimate high-luminosity phase of the machine and for new large colliders are possible. The use of Crystals in experiments for the study of diffractive physics will be the second goal of the Workshop.

The first part of the meeting will be devoted to a critical review of the results obtained in the various laboratories where the channeling techniques have been tested and implemented. The second part will be devoted to the presentation of new crystal production technologies and the possible use of bent crystals in the LHC collimation system. During the third and fourth part, the possible assessment of the new crystals through experiments performed at the CERN-SPS (external beam lines) and at the Tevatron will be discussed, new schemes for the collimation systems at LHC and new colliders will also be presented. Finally new schemes of operations to improve experimental studies of diffractive physics will be presented.
