Lowest energy, highest luminosity

We stop today for a (short) winter shutdown. The low energy run Oct-Dec'2019 was dedicated to our lowest energy range (180-300 MeV/beam). It turned out to be extremely successfull: the luminosity at E=180 MeV achieved L=0.6*10^30cm-2s-1 (see routine screenshot), that is a factor of 5(!) higher than our previous record obtained during low-energy run in 2013. Needless to say that it is the highest luminosity value ever observed in the world at these energies.
