LHCf sheds light on hadronic interaction models

The experience of the small LHCf collaboration, matured within the cosmic ray physics community, began in 2004 with the idea of designing a very thin detector to be installed along the LHC beam line, in such a way to cover the so called “very…

Final tests for the LHCf detector

LHCf is the LHC experiment dedicated to measuring neutral particles such as gamma-rays or neutrons at the very forward region of LHC IP1, in order to verify hadronic interactions of ultra-high energy cosmic rays. The experiment consists of two…
