Main components of the LHC accelerator
- Power converters How
do we power the magnets?
- Beam dump How do we get rid of
the beam, in an emergency, or at the end of a fill?
- Magnets Bending, focusing,
- Cryogenics How do we
keep the magnets cold?
- Vacuum The beam has to
travel in a very good vacuum
- Collimators Catching
particles before they catch the magnets.
leads Feeding the current from warm into the cold mass of the magnets
