The measurement of the magnetic field in the tracking volume inside the superconducting coil of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector under construction at CERN is done with a fieldmapper designed and produced at Fermilab. The fieldmapper uses 10 3-D B-sensors (Hall probes) developed at NIKHEF and calibrated at CERN to precision 0.05% for a nominal 4 T(More)
We report on measurements of hadronic and leptonic cross sections and leptonic forwardbackward asymmetries performed with the L3 detector in the years 1993–95. A total luminosity of 103 pb−1 was collected at centre-of-mass energies √ s ≈ mZ and √s ≈ mZ±1.8 GeV which corresponds to 2.5 million hadronic and 245 thousand leptonic events selected. These data(More)
The Beam Conditions and Radiation Monitoring System (BRM), is installed in CMS to protect the CMS detector from high beam losses and to provide feedback to the LHC and CMS on the beam conditions. The primary detector subsystems are based on either single crystal diamond sensors (BCM1F) for particle counting with nanosecond resolution or on polycrystalline(More)
The design of the readout for a calorimeter array of 12000 Bismuth Germanate crystals is presented. The system uses silicon photodiodes, each with its own ADC, to measure the scintillation light from each crystal. The ADC is implemented in software in a single chip microcomputer, using a modification of successive approximation, which produces a very wide(More)
The Pixel Luminosity Telescope (PLT) is a dedicated luminosity monitor, presently under construction and planned for installation during the next CMS opening, for the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It measures the particle flux in an array of sixteen telescopes each consisting of three layers of pixel diamond(More)
