Detector-accelerator interface studies at the Tevatron

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A summary of studies is presented towards minimization of beam loss in the critical locations at the Fermilab Tevatron to reduce background rates in the collider detectors and to protect machine components. Based on detailed Monte-Carlo simulations, measures have been proposed and incorporated in the machine to reduce accelerator-related instantaneous and residual background levels in the D0 and CDF detectors. Measurements performed are in good agreement with the predictions. Most recent results on acceptance and background rates in the D0 and CDF forward detectors are presented and discussed in detail.
