When does proton physics end?

Post by jmc2000 » Mon Sep 26, 2011 1:07 pm

Looking at the news for today, the team suggest:

Assuming that we get 3 ½ more good weeks + 1+ week for 90 m, floating MD etc
We can reach 5 fb-1 for ATLAS/CMS, > 1 fb-1 for LHCb

Which suggests that proton physics right to the end of the remaining 6 weeks isn't a priority.

So does proton physics end around October 20th, or is the priority to get 5/fb right to the end of October if need be?

There's even copy of the schedule on slide 7 of today's meeting minutes where they suggest they might be able to collect 5/fb this year.

Doesn't this suggest that they're only looking at another 3.5 weeks of integrated luminosity runs, with the remaining 1.5 for floating MD and 90m optics?

Yes it does seem to. They have 3.5/fb-1 now and have been getting 0.45/fb-1 a week since the last stop so that schedule seems right on target.
