Based on the CMS Upgrade R&D Proposal RD10.02, we describe the motivation and main features of the CMS GEM Project for LS2 and propose the addition of a full GE1/12 detector station comprising Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) chambers to the forward muon system of CMS. The limitations of the currently existing forward muon detector when operating at increasingly high luminosity expected after LS1 are laid out followed by a brief description of the anticipated performance improvements achievable…

GEM Performance Studies in CMS Experiment with Four Muons Final State

The standard model (SM) of particle physics, although it is a very successful theory and compatible with all experimental results, it has a number of shortcomings, in particular it provides no answer

Physics Studies for the CMS muon system upgrade with triple-GEM detectors

The CMS collaboration considers upgrading the muon forward region with Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) chambers, which are able to handle the extreme particle rates expected in this region along with a

Potential Impact of a New GEM-based Detector on CMS Triggering

With the increases in the LHC instantaneous luminosity, maintain- ing eective triggering and avoiding dead time will become especially challenging. As the sensitivity of many physics studies, depends
