  The aperture of the LHC interaction regions is crucial for the LHC performance because it determines the smaller β* that can be achieved. The aperture has been measured at a maximum energy of 3.5 TeV and at different β* values, following optimized procedure to allow safe measurements at high energy. In this paper, the results of these aperture measurements, which are used as a reference for β* reach and crossing scheme estimates at the LHC interaction points, are presented.
