Tracking detectors for the LHC upgrade

Abstract

The plans for an upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider LHC to the Super-LHC (sLHC) are reviewed with special consideration of the environment for the inner tracking system. A straw-man detector upgrade for ATLAS is presented, which is motivated by the varying radiation levels as a function of radius, and choices for detector geometries and technologies are discussed in the context of required signal-to-threshold ratios. r 2005 Elsevier B.V.
