Beam-beam simulations for separated beams in the LHC


We present beam-beam simulation results from a strong-strong gaussian code for separated beams for the LHC. We focus on the possible detrimental effects of the beam-beam interaction in cases when the beams are: (1) periodically swept about each other, and (2) brought into collision from separated orbits. For 105-turn runs we do not see significant emittance blowup for nominal bunch intensities, although there is significant blowup at intensities 10 times the nominal value.
