ALICE is the LHC experiment dedicated to the study of heavy-ion collisions. At forward rapidity a muon spectrometer detects muons from low mass mesons, quarkonia, open heavy-flavor hadrons as well as weak bosons. A muon selection based on transverse momentum is made by a trigger system composed of 72 resistive plate chambers (RPCs). For the LHC Run 1 and the ongoing Run 2 the RPCs have been equipped with a non-amplified FEE called ADULT. However, in view of an increase in luminosity expected… 

The upgrade of the RPC-based ALICE Muon Trigger

TLDR
The ALICE Muon Trigger will become a Muon Identifier and will undergo a major upgrade in order to meet the requirements posed by the forthcoming LHC high luminosity runs starting from 2021 onwards.
