Characterizing detector modules for the Upgrade of the Silicon Tracker of the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment

Deelen, Nikkie

Since its start-up in $2008$ the Large Hadron Collider has been producing proton-proton collisions with a center-of-mass energy approaching $14\,\text{TeV}$ for high-energy physics experiments at the European Center for Nuclear research. The resulting physics events are studied by four large experiments around the $27\,\text{km}$ collider ring one of them being the Compact Muon Solenoid detector. To boost the discovery potential of the Large Hadron Collider it will be upgraded in several phases, such that its particle interaction flux will be increased from $1\cdot10^{34}\,\text{cm}^{-2}\text{s}^{-1}$ to $5\cdot10^{34}\,\text{cm}^{-2}\text{s}^{-1}$. This is referred to as the High Luminosity Upgrade. Consequently, the four large experiments at the laboratory will be improved as well to cope with these operating conditions.

This research is focused on the characterization of prototype modules designed for the upgrade of the Compact Muon Solenoid's tracking sub-detector. It is composed of the Inner Tracker at its center that is surrounded by the Outer Tracker. The prototype modules under study consist of silicon pixel sensors and silicon strip sensors for the Inner and Outer Tracker, respectively. ... mehr
