The Large Hadron Collider forward (LHCf) experiment measures the forward particle production at the LHC to verify hadronic interaction models used in air shower experiments. We have upgraded very small sampling and imaging calorimeters using GSO scintillators to measure the most energetic particles generated in s=13Â TeV pâp collisions at the zero-degree region of the LHC. Upgraded detectors were calibrated at the SPS North area facility in CERN and it was confirmed that the detector can measure electro-magnetic showers with energy resolution of 3% and position resolution of better than 123Â Î¼m for 100Â GeV electrons. The operation of LHCf in 13Â TeV pâp collisions has been successfully completed with integrated luminosity of 5Â nbâ1. Reconstructed Ï0peak with the mass resolution of 3.7%Â and stability less than 1%Â during the operation implies that our measurement wasÂ stable enough in the high irradiation condition.
