Status of the CMS MSGC Tracker Academic Article uri icon


  • The current design of the Micro Strip Gas Chamber Tracker of the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment (CMS) at LHC is presented. An extensive study of the performance of the final layout MSGC detectors is being carried out in dedicated tests that reproduce LHC-like conditions. Results from these tests are reported, showing the reliability of the MSGC detectors optimized for tracking in the CMS environment. © 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
