The LHC transition to transcritical CO2 cooling technologies

A new generation of CO2 cooling for a new generation of LHC silicon detectors: a CO2 booster / CO2 evaporative (pumped) system will be adopted to cool the newly designed silicon detectors for ATLAS and CMS trackers by 2026. 

CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, runs four main detectors to conduct experiments in the world’s most powerful particles accelerator: the Large Hardon Collider (LHC). The LHC is a 27 km long circular tunnel located at 100 m below the ground between France and Switzerland. To c...
