    Sammanfattning

    The TOTEM experiment intends to measure the total proton proton cross-section at 14 TeV and the LHC luminosity with a precision of ≤ 5 % in short runs with a special β* = 90 m optics at an early stage of LHC operation. Furthermore, this will allow a measurement of the elastic proton proton scattering cross-section in a |t|-range from 0.04 to 1 GeV2, a study of soft proton proton diffraction with a large diffractive proton acceptance as well as provide precise information on the horizontal distribution of the proton proton interaction vertices.
