The ATLAS-MPX detectors are based on the Medipix2 silicon devices designed by CERN for the detection of multiple types of radiation. Sixteen such detectors were successfully operated in the ATLAS detector at the LHC and collected data independently of the ATLAS data-recording chain from 2008 to 2013. Each ATLAS-MPX detector provides separate measurements of the bunch-integrated LHC luminosity. An internal consistency for luminosity monitoring of about 2% was demonstrated. In addition, the MPX… 

MPX detectors as LHC luminosity monitor

A network of 16 Medipix-2 (MPX) silicon pixel devices was installed in the ATLAS detector cavern at CERN. It was designed to measure the composition and spectral characteristics of the radiation

Luminosity Measurements at the LHC at CERN Using Medipix, Timepix and Timepix3 Devices

The precise determination of the luminosity is essential for many analyses in physics based on the data from the particle accelerator Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. There are different types of

Luminosity from thermal neutron counting with MPX detectors and relation to ATLAS reference luminosity at √s= 8 TeV proton-proton collisions

A luminosity determination based on thermal neutron counting with six MPX silicon pixel devices installed in the ATLAS cavern is presented. Recently, the ATLAS Collaboration published final √s=8 TeV

Vertex counting as a luminosity measure at ATLAS and determination of the electroweak Zjj production cross-section

This thesis presents two analyses of data recorded by the ATLAS detector during proton-proton collisions at the LHC. The first is the implementation of a vertex counting algorithm to measure the

Differential cross section measurements in H→ WW and prospects of observing H→ bb in future LHC runs at the ATLAS detector

The highly celebrated discovery of a new particle with a mass of 125 GeV in proton-proton collisions by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the CERN Large Hadron Collider in 2012 has been shown to be

Identification of b-jets and c-jets using deep neural networks with the ATLAS detector: the development and performance of a family of DL1 high-level flavour tagging algorithms

DL1 represents the first use of Deep Learning for ATLAS physics object reconstruction as well as the first major application of advanced deep neural networks within the collaboration.
