LABORATORI NAZIONALI DI FRASCATI
Speaker: Lucio Rossi (CERN)
To decisively upgrade the luminosity of the LHC, and increase its Physics reach, the High Luminosity LHC project is opening a new territory, developing a broad range of new technologies: accelerator magnets in the 12 tesla range based on advanced Nb3Sn technology, long superconducting links rated for 100 kA with novel MgB2 superconductors, new type of SRF cavities, etc…. The talk will discuss the status of these new technologies for HL-LHC and especially the high field magnets, now at the verge of entering into production, as well as the studies under way for the post-LHC Hadron Collider. In particular, for the FCC stronger Nb3Sn magnets, for 16 T, are under design and the first R&D on HTS (High Temperature Superconductors) accelerator magnets has started. HTS magnet results are promising to open the 20 T range, which would bring the 100 km FCC even beyond the 100 TeV threshold.
