Topic: Picosecond timing for precision physics at High Luminosity LHC Where: WH11 NE (Sunrise)


A high luminosity upgrade for LHC is being considered which would provide an accumulated luminosity of a few atto barn. A detailed study of the recently discovered Higgs-like particle and the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking will be major physics goals, as well as continued searches for new physics. To achieve such large accumulated luminosities LHC has to operate for about 10 years at luminosities exceeding 10^34 cm?\210'2s?\210'1, pile-up is expected to be on the order of 150 interactions per bunch crossing. I will discuss how precision timing can utilized to mitigate the effects of pile-up in this era of precision physics at the LHC."
