DOE Review of LARP, June 5-6, 2007, Fermilab


The U.S. LHC Accelerator Research Program (LARP) consists

of four US laboratories, BNL, FNAL, LBNL, and SLAC, who collaborate with CERN on the Large Hadron Collider in order to:

  • make more luminosity, earlier
  • collaborate in an interaction region upgrade, in order to make even more luminosty, later
  • use, develop, and preserve unique U.S. resources and capabilities.
