    Abstract

    The LHC forward (LHCf) experiment consists of two small sampling calorimeters installed in the LHC tunnel at ±140 from IP1, so that it can detect neutral particles produced by p-ion collisions in the very forward region (pseudorapidity n > 8.4). The main aim of LHCf is to provide precise measurements of the particles produced in high-energy p-p and p-Pb collisions in order to tune hadronic interaction models used by ground-based cosmic rays experiments. In this paper we will discuss the present status of the LHCf experiment, the collected data and measurements done, as well as future prospects.
