ATLAS Upgrade Information


LHC luminosity upgrade is expected to go in two stages:
Phase 1 (~2015): upgrade to configuration which can eventually deliver 
Phase 2 (~2019): upgrade to enable SuperLHC (sLHC) luminosity of 1035

The sLHc upgrade in particular poses unprecedented challenges to the detectors with ~400 interactions per beam crossing and high radiation dose which demand major upgrades with substantial R&D and lead time to design and construct. Among the detector upgrade projects:

For the phase 1 near term upgrade to improve the current detector, the projects at various stage of development:
