The UA9 experiment was installed in the CERN-SuperProtonSynchrotron (SPS) in March ’09 with the aim of investigating crystal-assisted collimation in coasting mode. Beam collimation is a major challenge for colliders aiming to achieve high beam current. Crystal channeling represents a viable solution to improve the collimation efficiency and reduce the background in the accelerators. Results of 2010 tests on SPS are shown demonstrating how this technique is mature to be tested directly on the Large Hadron Collider.
