3 NIELS BOHR INSTITUTE UNIVERSITY OF COPENHAGEN Observations on background in ALFA Background again very high on beam 2 for ALFA (beam 1 for TOTEM). Very large background at 4 σ nominal even with primary collimators at 2 σ nominal Huge reduction in background observed when move out both plan of primary collimators (up to factor 40). Repopulation speed depending steep size. Sune JakobsenObservations on background in ALFA for β* = 1000 m MD 3/5 First 100 µm step with C6R7: rate 9800 Hz and increasing by 1850 Hz/minute (19 %) Second 100 µm step with C6R7: rate 4200 Hz and increasing by 425 Hz/minute (10 %) 1000 µm step with C6R7: rate 720 Hz and increasing by 230 Hz/minute (30 %) Background study in ALFA Background study in ATLAS Conclusions

5 NIELS BOHR INSTITUTE UNIVERSITY OF COPENHAGEN Conclusions Background again very high on beam 2 for ALFA (beam 1 for TOTEM). Very large background at 4 σ nominal even with primary collimators at 2 σ nominal. Scraping and then retracting the primary collimators effectually reduces the background, but only proven for positions that will not be allowed during data taking. Repopulation speed depending step size. Sune JakobsenObservations on background in ALFA for β* = 1000 m MD 5/5 Further studies needed and preferably a collimator solution which does not imply any movement/interruptions during data taking. Background study in ALFA Background study in ATLAS Conclusions
