"Silicon Microstrip Detectors in High Luminosity Application"


[ Full Article | Questions & Answers | Help | IIB Home Page ]


The development of silicon microstrip detectors for high luminosity application at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is described. The technical choices are most severely restricted by the anticipated radiation damage. The arguments are presetned which led to the selection of the base-line detectors for the silicon tracker of the LHC detector ATLAS: sandwiches of single-sided detectors of n-strips in n-type bulk.
