Abstract

The LHCf experiment is an LHC experiment dedicated to measure the production spectra of forward neutral particles, photons, π0's, and neutrons. The aim of the LHCf is to provide critical data to test and tune hadronic interaction models which are used in MC simulations for cosmic-ray air shower developments. The LHCf had an operation in 2015 with pp collisions at √s = 13 TeV, which corresponds to the collision energy of 0.9 × 1017eV in the laboratory frame. The resent results of the LHCf, the inclusive energy spectra for forward photons and neutrons obtained with pp collisions at √s = 13 TeV, are presented. In addition, future prospects of LHCf analyses and activities are reviewed.
