The trigger system of the ALICE muon spectrometer consists of 4 planes of Resistive Plate Chambers (RPC) for a total of 72 modules covering an area of 140 m2. The detectors are read out by means of 21K front-end channels and the signals are processed by fast electronics providing the muon trigger to the experiment. In 2010 and 2011 the muon spectrometer was… CONTINUE READING
