ATLAS Pixels group milestone achieved

September 1, 2021

Collider Physics Group

The ATLAS pixel group completed the first step to qualify IFAE as a 3D module production site for the HL-LHC upgrade

Three triplets were produced according to a set of stringent requirements that include controlling the glue thickness to within +/- 10 um and the position of the modules to within 20 um.

Juan Carlotto and Pablo Fernandez led the activities, with the help of Eric Peregrina and Jorge Garcia. However, this effort is soon to be followed by the more demanding fabrication of RD53A triplet prototypes.
