ATLAS pixels group milestone towards ITk module production

IFAE´s ATLAS pixels group has achieved a new milestone towards the ATLAS ITk Pixel module production.

Last week, IFAE succeeded in the second stage electrical test qualification, which allows our lab to complete the full characterization of the ITk pixel modules after their production at IFAE. Among other aspects, the second stage electrical tests qualification includes the capability of carrying out specific electrical tests at low temperatures.

The activities towards this qualification were carried out by Juan I. Carlotto, Jaume Tovar and P. Fernández on fully operational ITk modules previously assembled at IFAE.
