Roger Bailey (CERN)

"The Large Hadron Collider and Beyond"

Kivonatos ismertetés:

The LHC is a very large, technically demanding scientific instrument and is a very large undertaking to build and operate. In this talk we will briefly recall why such a research device is needed before des cribing the main features of the LHC machine and presenting the present performance. Plans for performance upgrades foreseen in the next ten years will be shown, and we will then take a look at what might be on the more distant horizon.

Brief bio:

Roger Bailey obtained a PhD in Experimental Particle physics from the University of Sheffield, United Kingdom, in 1979. This was followed by a postdoctoral appointment with Rutherford Laboratory, Oxford, United Kingdom until 1983. During both of these activities he worked on HEP experiments at the CERN SPS, being based at CERN from 1977. In 1983 he joined the Operations Group at the CERN SPS, with responsibility for accelerator operation during the fixed target and p-pbar programs at this facility until 1989. He then joined the LEP commissioning effort, and subsequent operation, becoming Operations Group Leader in the late 1990s. After closure of LEP, he became progressively more involved in the LHC, developing the planning and building the team for LHC commissioning with beam. He was actively involved in LHC commissioning and early operation in the years 2008 to 2010. From 2011 he has been the director of the CERN Accelerator School (CAS).
