The LHC is back in business, with the experiments collecting data at 4 TeV/beam, marginally higher than last year’s 3.5 TeV/beam. They are ramping up the number of bunches in each beam, already this afternoon achieving a higher initial luminosity … Continue reading ?
CERN just issued a press release announcing the decision about the energy for the initial LHC run: 3.5 TeV/beam. The procedure for the 2009 start-up will be to inject and capture beams in each direction, take collision data for a fe... Read Post
At 5:23 am in Geneva this morning, for the first time the two LHC beams were ramped up to high energy, the 3.5 TeV/beam that they plan to run at for the next two years. These are the highest energy (per particle) beams ever created ... Read Post
