LHCf is an experiment designed to study the very forward emission of neutral particles produced in collisions at the LHC. Its results can be used to calibrate the hadron interaction models of the Monte Carlo codes which allow the interpretation of energy spectrum and composition of high-energy cosmic rays as measured by air shower ground detectors. The experiment has already completed taking data in proton-proton collisions at √s = 900 GeV and at √s = 7TeV during 2009 and 2010. The detectors are now being upgraded and they will be installed again in the LHC tunnel for proton-ion collisions and for operation with protons at √s = 14TeV. In this paper results and comparisons with the predictions obtained from Monte Carlo simulations will be reported.
