R&D and LHC Collective Effects

A team of the CERN AB-ABP Group

Our Mission: The RLC team carries out theoretical and experimental research in the dynamics of high-intensity particle beams. We are in charge of beam intensity limitations and their control by adequate low-impedance hardware design or operation scenarios, including beam-beam and electron cloud effects, to reach and exceed nominal LHC performance. The team coordinates international R&D activities for future accelerators and is in charge of LHC upgrade and CLIC/CTF3 beam dynamics and design studies.
