The high luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) will use transverse
deflecting superconducting cavities (aka crab cavities) to achieve
head-on collisions at the interaction points (IP1 and IP5). Crab
cavities will recover the geometric luminosity loss due to the finite
crossing angle at the IPs without which the peak luminosity loss can be
up to 70 %. The development of the superconducting crab cavities
which were tested for the first time with proton beam in the Super
Proton Synchrotron (SPS) is discussed. The main highlights from the
beams tests are outlined.
