Since the end of the technical stop last week, the Large Hadron Collider has now worked its way back to fills with 1380 bunches in each direction. This evening it reached a new record peak intensity of about 1.6/nb/s beating the previous record of 1.28/nb/s.
So far about 56/pb have been added to the integrated luminosity since the stop. Most runs have been short with dumps due to UFOs and other glitches. The new record brings hope that the collider is getting back towards long clean runs and will soon be clocking up data at a faster than ever rate.
