Documents relevant to LHC Machine Advisory Committee Meeting No. 6, 2-4/11/1998

This page is provided solely for the convenience of members of the LHC Machine Advisory Committee.

The following list may be incomplete and may be updated by electronic mail.

Please note that some references (e.g. the LHC Project Notes) are informal working documents, distributed locally.

The General information Pages of the Large Hadron Collider project include access to lists of many LHC documents (via the "Publications" button) and LHC Technical Information.

A principal reference for most subjects is the LHC Conceptual Design Report (CERN/AC/95-05(LHC)).

LHC Project Reports

Alternatively, many documents are accessible directly from the following queries to the CERN Preprint Server (response may be slow!):

If these are too general, you may wish to formulate your own specific queries (remember to select CERN as category before clicking the Search button).
Typical syntax example:  LHC&&magnet&&cable

LHC Project Notes are not available on WWW (except for a few here).

Send mail to request paper copies of those documents which interest you. It may be possible to send copies electronically (e.g. Postscript files) or by fax to speed up delivery. Please give your preferences or say if a few days delay for normal air mail would be adequate.

Vacuum: Getter developments

C. Benvenuti has provided the following references:

N.B.  The second of these references may require that you have access to the on-line versions of the journals.
The last reference is not yet published. If you would like a copy of this (or another one) mailed to you please send mail to the Scientific Secretary.
