This webinar, presented by Frank Gerigk, will provide an overview of the LHC RF system, its superconducting cavities and RF power system. It also introduce the changes, which will be implemented to accelerate the high-intensity beams of the HL-LHC era.

Join this webinar to:
• Learn about the technology that accelerates LHC protons from 450 GeV to 7 TeV.
• Appreciate the development of the superconducting cavities used in the LHC.
• Understand how the LHC system will be modified for HL-LHC and how crab cavities will increase the number of collisions.

Frank Gerigk is the leader of the Radio Frequency (RF) Group at CERN. After graduating at the Technical University Berlin in 1999, he came to CERN as a fellow to work on RF and beam dynamics for linear accelerators. In 2002, he became staff member at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the UK, continuing with beam dynamics and focussing on halo development in hadron beams. After his return to CERN in 2005, Frank joined the RF group and soon became responsible for the Linac4 RF cavities. He became section leader for Linac RF in 2012, and then for Superconducting RF in 2018. Since 2020 he has been leading the RF group in the new Systems Department.
