Paper Abstract

We demonstrate that channeling in a crystal can serve as a primary scraper for the collimation system of the Large Hadron Collider. It has been proven both experimentally and in Monte Carlo simulations that crystal as a scraper meets all technical requirements imposed on the LHC collimation system. Crystal scraper works in efficient, predictable, reliable manner with beams of very high intensity over years. If used as a primary element in the LHC collimation system, crystal makes the machine cleaner by a factor of 10 due to channeling with efficiency of about 90% - the figure already demonstrated experimentally at 70 GeV and in simulations for the LHC and Tevatron.
