LHC Commissioning and First Operation

Myers, S;
Open Access English
  • Published: 01 Jun 2010
A description is given of the repair of the LHC after the accident of September 2008. The LHC hardware and beam commissioning and initial operation are reviewed both in terms of beam and hardware performance. The implemented machine protection measures and their impact on LHC operation are presented.
