Tevatron Running Great

Last week Fermilab Today published an article on the recent improvements in Tevatron performance which resulted in the peak luminosity breaking the 2×1032 cm-2s-1 barrier. Well they wrote it too soon since they set a new record this weekend of 2.25×1032 cm-2s-1. The CDF and D-Zero collaborators have had to make changes to their trigger to handle the high luminosity. I hope they got their changes in before the recent improvements.

Here is the graphic shown at the one of the weekly meetings.
