Operation of the ATLAS Transition Radiation Tracker under very high irradiation at the CERN LHC

Published

Journal Article

The ATLAS Transition Radiation Tracker (TRT) performance depends critically on the choice of the active gas and on its properties. The most important operational aspects, which have led to the final choice of the active gas for the operation of the TRT at the LHC design luminosity, are presented. The TRT performance expected at these conditions is reviewed, including pile-up effects at high luminosity. © 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
