ATLAS Upgrade Information


This page contains ATLAS upgrade information of interest to the SLAC/Stanford local ATLAS community.

LHC luminosity upgrade is planned in threes stages:
Phase 0 (2015-2018): LHC energy 8→13-14 TeV with full current, and L~1-2x1034, and ⟨μ⟩ up to ~80, to integrate 150 fb-1 until LS2.
Phase 1 (2021-2023): 14 TeV. Integrate to 300 fb-1 until LS3.
Phase 2 (2026-2030): HL-LHC upgrade with luminosity levelling 5-7x1034, ⟨μ⟩ up to ~200, to integrate 3000 fb-1.
