LHC Technical Reports published in the Journal of Instrumentation - 26 Aug 2008
The Journal of Instrumentation (JINST), jointly published by IOP Publishing and the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), has announced the publication of the complete scientific documentation of the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) machine and detectors, which is claimed to be the world’s largest experimental facility in particle physics. The seven major articles, covering the entire LHC project, are published as a special issue of the Journal of Instrumentation and are available online at http://www.iop.org/EJ/journal/-page=extra.lhc/jinst.
In time for the LHC start-up on September 10, the articles form a complete scientific documentation of the design and construction of the LHC machine, and all six detectors (ALICE, ATLAS, CMS, LHCb, LHCf and TOTEM). These articles will serve as key references for the stream of scientific results that will begin to emerge from the LHC soon after the first collisions expected later this year.
Journal of Instrumentation is a peer-reviewed journal created by the International School of Advanced Studies (SISSA) and IOP Publishing. The journal covers major areas related to concepts and instrumentation in detector physics, accelerator science and associated experimental methods and techniques, theory, modelling and simulations.
