CERN scientists visit Cockcroft Institute to discuss next step for LHC
The Cockcroft Institute recently played host to the annual HiLumi-LARP meeting to discuss the luminosity upgrade of the LHC.
180 participants from CERN, US, France, Spain and Italy attended the workshop to discuss plans for a major upgrade to the Large hadron Collider at CERN, which could increase its luminosity by a factor of 10 beyond its design value.
Lancaster University, which is one of the four partners in the Cockcroft, plays a lead role in the project and is responsible for the design of the crab cavities, used to align the bunches for collision.
