Status and Plans of ATLAS-TPX Data Analysis from Collisions at 13 TeV

Davide Caforio and Andre Sopczak

IEAP CTU in Prague

Abstract: A network of Timepix (TPX) detectors is used to measure the radiation field and luminosity in the ATLAS cavern resulting from LHC 13 TeV proton-proton collisions. The status of internal measurements and the comparison with ATLAS luminometers are presented. This includes hit counting versus thermal neutron counting luminosity, radiation damage and self-healing, particle fluxes and comparison with simulations, precision of measurements of the luminosity during van der Meer scans and exact determination of the background, induced radioactivity (activation), and a comparison with ATLAS luminometers regarding calibration transfer and long-term stability.

Seminar takes place on Tuesday, August 1st 2017 at 2:00 PM

in the IEAP meeting room, Praha 2 ‐ Albertov, Horská 3a/22.
