LHC: Physics and Technologies Pearl

Ranko Ostojić

The Large Hadron Collider at CERN is the flagship particle accelerator that will undoubtedly shape the high-energy frontier for the next two decades. The project was approved in 1996 and the collider commissioned in 2010. During the first period of operation, the LHC delivered about 25 fb-1 of data from p-p collisions at √s of 7-8 TeV to the ATLAS and CMS experiments resulting in a wealth of new physics results, including the discovery of a Higgs-like boson. This talk will present the physics of beams underlying the design of the LHC, and will describe the forefront technologies that enabled its success.
