Paper Abstract

The possibilities to deflect high-energy protons by bent atomic axes with the purpose of its further use for halo cleaning at the LHC are investigated. Our simulations show that more than 80% of the LHC protons initially moving at small angles with respect to bent crystal axes can be deflected at the angles of about one hundred microradians to the initial beam direction due to the volume capture into the planar channeling regime. The deflection efficiency exceeding 95% is reached at crystal bending angles of about 10 microradians.
