WEYYPLM1 Status of Early SuperKEKB Phase-3 Commissioning 2255

  SuperKEKB is an asymmetric energy electron-positron collider for B-meson physics experiment. The beam collision with 3mm vertical beta function at the interaction point is confirmed during prior beam commissioning until July 2018. The next beam commissioning with the inner silicon vertex detectors so called "phase-3 commissioning" will start in March 2019. In the early part of next phase-3 commissioning, we plan to try the collision operation with over 1A stored beam current in order to exceed 1 x 1034 cm-2 s-1 luminosity. We will report the preliminary results of the early stage of the SuperKEKB phase-3 commissioning.

  The fourth one-month Pb-Pb collision run brought LHC Run 2 to an end in December 2018. Following the tendency to reduce dependence on the configuration of the preceding proton run, a completely new optics cycle with the strongest ever focussing at the ALICE and LHCb experiments was designed and rapidly implemented, demonstrating the maturity of the collider’s operating modes. Beam-loss monitor thresholds were carefully adjusted to provide optimal protection from the multiple loss mechanisms in heavy-ion operation. A switch from a basic bunch-spacing of 100 ns to 75 ns was made as the beam became available from the injector chain. A new record luminosity, 6 times the original design and close to the operating value proposed for HL-LHC, provided validation of the strategy for mitigating quenches due to bound-free pair production (BFPP) at the interaction points of the ATLAS and CMS experiments. Most of the beam parameters of the HL-LHC Pb-Pb upgrade were attained during this run and the integrated luminosity goals for the first 10 years of LHC operation were substantially exceeded.

  The compensation of the long-range beam-beam interactions using DC wires is presently under study as an option for enhancing the machine performance in the frame of the High-Luminosity LHC project (HL-LHC). The original idea dates back more than 15 years. After the installation of four wire prototypes in the LHC in 2018, a successful experimental campaign was performed during the last months. The experimental setup and the main results are reported in this paper.
