    Upgrade of the BOC for the ATLAS Pixel Insertable B-Layer

    Get PDF
    The phase 1 upgrade of the ATLAS [1] pixel detector will be done by inserting a fourth pixel layer together with a new beampipe into the recent three layer detector. This new detector, the Insertable B-Layer (IBL) should be integrated into the recent pixel system with as few changes in services as possible, but deliver some advantages over the recent system. One of those advantages will be a new data transmission link from the detector modules to the off-detector electronics, requiring a re-design of the electro-optical converters on the off-detector side. First ideas of how to implement those, together with some ideas to reduce cost by increasing the systems throughput are discussed

    The ATLASPix sensor has been developed as a monolithic High Voltage CMOS sensor candidate for the ATLAS inner tracker upgrade. The ATLASPix3 is the third version, and is the first full reticle-sized sensor developed for multi-module compatibility. The detector is operational, and has been tested as a single chip, and as a 4-layer telescopes in an electron testbeam, with energies up to 6 GeV at DESY. First results of the testbeam data analysis are presented here

    ATLASPIX3 Modules for Experiments at Electron-Positron Colliders

    Get PDF
    High-voltage CMOS detectors are being developed for application in High-Energy Physics. ATLASPIX3 is a full-reticle size monolithic pixel detector, consisting of 49000 pixels of dimension 50√ó150 őľm2^2. It has been realized in in TSI 180 nm HVCMOS technology. In view of applications at future electron-positron colliders, multi-chip-modules are built. The module design and its characterization by electrical test and radiation sources will be illustrated, including characterization of shunt regulators for serial chain powering. Lightweight long structure to support and to cool multiple-module chain are also being realized. The multi-chip-modules performance shows no degradation with respect to single-chip devices and the level of integration achieved is suitable for tracking at future e+e- accelerators

    Single hadron response measurement and calorimeter jet energy scale uncertainty with the ATLAS detector at the LHC

    Get PDF
    The uncertainty on the calorimeter energy response to jets of particles is derived for the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). First, the calorimeter response to single isolated charged hadrons is measured and compared to the Monte Carlo simulation using proton-proton collisions at centre-of-mass energies of sqrt(s) = 900 GeV and 7 TeV collected during 2009 and 2010. Then, using the decay of K_s and Lambda particles, the calorimeter response to specific types of particles (positively and negatively charged pions, protons, and anti-protons) is measured and compared to the Monte Carlo predictions. Finally, the jet energy scale uncertainty is determined by propagating the response uncertainty for single charged and neutral particles to jets. The response uncertainty is 2-5% for central isolated hadrons and 1-3% for the final calorimeter jet energy scale.Comment: 24 pages plus author list (36 pages total), 23 figures, 1 table, submitted to European Physical Journal

    Prototype ATLAS IBL Modules using the FE-I4A Front-End Readout Chip

    Get PDF
    The ATLAS Collaboration will upgrade its semiconductor pixel tracking detector with a new Insertable B-layer (IBL) between the existing pixel detector and the vacuum pipe of the Large Hadron Collider. The extreme operating conditions at this location have necessitated the development of new radiation hard pixel sensor technologies and a new front-end readout chip, called the FE-I4. Planar pixel sensors and 3D pixel sensors have been investigated to equip this new pixel layer, and prototype modules using the FE-I4A have been fabricated and characterized using 120 GeV pions at the CERN SPS and 4 GeV positrons at DESY, before and after module irradiation. Beam test results are presented, including charge collection efficiency, tracking efficiency and charge sharing.Comment: 45 pages, 30 figures, submitted to JINS
