World’s first crabbing of a proton beam

Crab cavities are special electromagnetic cavities that use electric and magnetic fields to rotate the bunch prior to collision in a particle collider so that the beams collide head-on rather than at an angle. This is one of the most critical elements of the LHC luminosity upgrade. Wh
