Commissioning and Operation at β* = 1000m in the LHC


We have developed a special optics with a β* of 1000 m for two interaction regions (IR1 and IR5) in the LHC, to produce very low divergence beams required for elastic proton-proton scattering. We describe the design, commissioning and operation of this optics in the LHC. The β* of 1000 m was reached by de-squeezing the beams using 17 intermediate steps beyond the β* of 90 m, which had been the previous highest β* value reached in the LHC. The optics was measured and the beta beating globally corrected to a level of 10 per cent.
