Abstract

LHCf is an experiment dedicated to the measurement of neutral particles emitted in the very forward region of LHC collisions. Two independent detectors were designed to measure the particle energy and the incident position with the resolutions of <5% and <200 μm, respectively, for the gammarays of >100 GeV. The performance of the detectors was tested at the CERN SPS North Area H4 beam line in August-September 2007. Results of the beam test were well explained by Monte Carlo calculations used in the prediction of the LHCf performance at the LHC energy.
