Title: The Luminosity Monitoring System for the LHC: Modeling and Test Results

Abstract

Simulation results of the Beam Rate of Neutrals (BRAN) luminosity detector for the CERN Large Hadron Collider are presented. The detectors are intended to measure the bunch-by-bunch relative luminosity at the ATLAS and CMS experiments. Building up from experimental results from test runs at the SPS, RHIC and ALS we extend the simulated setup to the TAN neutral absorbers located at 140 m at both sides the IP1 and IP5 interaction points. The expected signal amplitudes are calculated for pp-collisions energies between 450 GeV and 7 TeV using the Monte Carlo package FLUKA and its graphical user interface FLAIR.
