Abort gap Area without any bunches in the bunch train that fits the time required for building up the nominal field of the LHC dump kicker
Arc The part of the ring occupied by regular half-cells. Each arc contains 46 half cells. The arc does not contain the dispersion suppressor.
Arc cell It consists of two arc half-cells and presents the basic period of the optic
Arc half-cell Periodic part of the LHC arc lattice. Each half-cell consists of a string of three twin aperture main dipole magnets and one short straight section. The cryo magnets of all arc half-cells follow the same orientation with the dipole lead end pointing upstream of Beam 1 (downstream of Beam 2).
