Overview Upgrade Activities

Strip Detector

We have used our experience from the assembly, commissioning and operation of the SCT to play a leading role in the design of the silicon tracker for the upgrade. The critical issues are how to develop a robust system with a very low material budget and is sufficiently modular to allow rapid and cost-effective production. We have therefore developed solutions for the local and global mechanics as well as all aspects of the electrical, optical and cooling services.

Pixel Detector

We have also become strongly involved in the development of new silicon sensors.
We are developing robotic assembly systems for pixel modules.
