Description

LHC foresees a staged implementation of collimation. The first stage is presently being constructed and installed. A second stage should allow an even higher performance reach and shoul address several possible limitations in the initial installation. Collimators are the closest elements to the high-intenisty LHC beam and must be designed to directly intercept beam particles. The question of material with high power load and high activation is a crucial ingredient in the studies towards an upgraded collimation system. The open questions and required boundary conditions for jaw materials in the LHC collimation system are presented.
