During the start of 2024, the ATLAS pixel group assembled new 3D sensor modules for AFP (a diffractive experiment in ATLAS).

The IBL-type sensors were fabricated at CNM and the flip-chipping and assembly was done by IFAE. The testing of the modules was done by colleagues from CERN.

A total of six new modules were produced and are now installed in ATLAS.
