LHC Crab Cavity

Crab cavities have potential applications in various areas, from increasing the luminosity of colliders to the generation of short X-ray pulses in light sources. The idea of using a crab cavity in colliders is due to BNL's Robert Palmer.

The C-AD SRF and electron cooling group is involved in the development of crab cavities for the LHC. More detail are at
