A large Scintillating Fibre Tracker for LHCb
 Reference: Poster-2021-1047 Created: 2021. -1 p Creator(s): Berninghoff, Daniel Alexander The LHCb detector is currently being upgraded to cope with higher instantaneous luminosities and to read out data at 40 MHz using a trigger-less read-out system. The new main tracker consists of 250µm thick scintillating fibres (SciFi) and covers an area of 340 m2. The tracker provides a spatial resolution for charged particles better than 80 µm. The scintillation light is recorded with arrays of multi-channel silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs). A custom ASIC is used to digitize the SiPM signals and subsequent digital electronics performs clustering and data-compression. Single detector modules are mounted on so-called C-frames (3m × 6m) which will provide the mechanical support and the necessary services. The serial assembly of the 12 large frames, each comprising 50,000 SiPM channels, is progressing and the first detector elements have been commissioned. This presentation will cover the development, construction and the commissioning results of the detector. © CERN Geneva Access to files

LHCb RMS-R3 — new radiation hard system for on-line monitoring of beam and background conditions in Run 3
 Reference: Poster-2021-1046 Created: 2021. -1 p Creator(s): Dobishuk, Vasyl; Alessio, Federico; Chernyshenko, Serhii; Okhrimenko, Oleksandr; Pugatch, Valery During Run 3, the LHCb experiment will collect data at a higher luminosity with respect to the previous decade of data taking. The Radiation Monitoring System (RMS-R3) will display the interaction rate of the LHC’s beams along with its background in LHCb. The RMS-R3 comprises four detector modules based on the Metal-Foil Detectors radiation hard technology that can withstand fluences up to 1020 MIPs/cm2 or radiation doses of up to a GGy, during its entire lifespan. The modules are placed symmetrically around the beam pipe very close to the Interaction Point at LHCb at a distance of about 2.2 m, while covering a backward acceptance of 7–14 degrees. The readout electronics provide a continuous relative luminosity measurement for LHCb and observations of background evolutions during the various stages of the beam preparation towards collisions. The RMS-R3 detector's performance has shown good response reproducibility of about 1% and excellent linearity. © CERN Geneva Access to files

The upgrade of the LHCb RICH detector
 Reference: Poster-2021-1045 Created: 2021. -1 p Creator(s): Bartolini, Matteo The two LHCb RICH detectors have provided excellent particle ID until the end of Run2 in 2018 operating at the luminosity of ∼4×1032 cm−2s−1. From the beginning of Run3 in 2022, the Level 0 hardware trigger of the experiment will be removed to allow data readout at the full LHC collision rate of 40 MHz and the luminosity will be increased to ∼2×1033 cm−2s−1. In order to adapt the RICH system to the new rate, the current HPD detectors with embedded electronics limited to readout event rate of 1 MHz have been replaced by MaPMTs with external readout electronics. Moreover, in order to reduce the occupancy of the photon detectors due to the higher luminosity, a reoptimization of the optics is required. In this talk the upgraded opto-electronics chain and the performance expected for Run3 will be presented together with the automated quality control procedures to qualify the RICH photon detectors and support electronics. © CERN Geneva Access to files

Novel photon timing techniques in the LHCb RICH upgrade programme
 Reference: Poster-2021-1044 Created: 2021. -1 p Creator(s): Keizer, Floris The Ring-Imaging Cherenkov (RICH) detectors at LHCb have an excellent intrinsic time resolution owing to the prompt Cherenkov radiation and focusing mirrors optics. While only spatial information has been used in the experiment to date, the addition of photon time information is one of the cornerstones of the RICH upgrade programme. The novel timing techniques presented on this poster provide a powerful tool for background suppression and particle ID performance improvements using state of the art electronics. © CERN Geneva Access to files

The track-based alignment of the ALFA Roman Pot detectors of the ATLAS experiment
 Reference: ATL-FWD-PUB-2021-003 Note: PUB Keywords:  ALFA, alignment Created: 2021. -1 p ALFA detector is part of the ATLAS Roman Pot detector dedicated to measure protons scattered at very small angles. ALFA aims to study elastic and diffractive events in special runs with reduced luminosity and optimized beam optics. Precision of the measurement depends on the correct positioning of the ALFA detector with respect to the actual beam position. For this purpose track-based procedure is used which utilizes tracks of beam halo and elastic protons collected during physics data taking. This poster presents results of fast and robust alignment of ALFA detectors during LHC Run 2. The alignment constants are used in analysis of diffractive events and also serve as preliminary values in elastic analysis. Precise measurements of the elastic cross sections required dedicated more precise measurement Original Communication (restricted to ATLAS)Fulltext

A study of the proton reconstruction efficiency with the ALFA detector using an overlay technique of Monte Carlo signal events with zero-bias collider data.
 Reference: ATL-FWD-PUB-2021-001 Note: PUB Created: 2021. -mult. p The purpose of the ATLAS Roman Pot (ARP) detector is to measure protons scattered at very small angles. ARP aims to study elastic and diffractive events, exclusive production and photon induced interactions. In LHC Run 2, ARP participated in the ATLAS high-luminosity data taking. In addition, several special runs with reduced luminosity were taken. Any cross section measurement requires good understanding of the particle reconstruction efficiency. This task is particularly complicated in case of forward protons where actual beam condition is important part of the working environment. Modeling of the very forward region in terms of primary particle flux and inactive material producing secondary particle is generally not precise. An overlay technique of MonteCarlo signal events with zero-bias collider data overcomes these difficulties and may provide better understanding of the proton reconstruction efficiency. Proposed plots present results of the proton reconstruction efficiency with the ALFA detector. Original Communication (restricted to ATLAS)Fulltext

LHCb - X(3872) production in pp with particle multiplicity
 Reference: Poster-2021-1042 Created: 2021. -5 p Creator(s): Epple, Eliane The last decade of hadron spectroscopy has unveiled a wealth of states that do not have the properties expected of particles composed of 2 or 3 valence quarks. Among the most intriguing of these exotics is the X(3872), which various models attempt to describe as a hadronic molecule, a compact tetraquark, an unexpected charmonium state, or their mixtures. Production in heavy ion collisions, as well as high multiplicity pp collisions, offer a new window on the properties of this poorly understood hadron. In these systems, promptly produced X(3872) hadrons can interact with other particles in the nucleus and/or those produced in the collision. The influence of these interactions on the observed X(3872) yields provides information that can help discriminate between the various models of its structure, as well as give insight into the dynamics of the bulk particles produced in these collisions. With a full range of precision vertexing, tracking, and particle ID capabilities covering 2 to 5 in units of rapidity, the LHCb experiment is especially well suited to measurements of both prompt and non-prompt exotic hadrons.This talk will present new LHCb measurements X(3872) production in highmultiplicity pp collisions through the decay to J/ψπ+π−.

LHCb - The Design and Construction of the LHCb VELO modules
 Reference: Poster-2020-1041 Created: 2019. -1 p Creator(s): Svihra, Peter The construction of the new LHCb Vertex Locator (VELO) detector is presented. The upgraded subsystem will play a crucial role in the tracking during data-taking runs starting in 2021, its main objective locating primary and secondary vertices. Compared to its predecessor, the main advantages are better resolution together with trigger-less readout at the maximal rate of 40 MHz. In total, VELO consists of 52 modules positioned in vacuum along the LHC beampipe, surrounding the interaction point. The modules are populated with 4 hybrid silicon pixel detectors with pixel pitch of 55 $\mu$m. Each of the sensors is read out by 3 VeloPix ASICs with 256x256 pixels. For experiment control and data propagation, sets of front-end hybrids and GBTx ASICs are utilized. The data are then sent through a vacuum feed-through board to an opto-and-power (OPB) board, which is connected to the rest of the experiment via optical fibres. Cooling of the whole module is achieved by phase transition of liquid CO2 using a custom-made silicon micro-channel substrate. The assembly of modules at both University of Manchester (Manchester, UK) and Nikhef (Amsterdam, NL) requires high precision in many aspects, therefore extensive procedures for the large-scale construction and its quality assurance have been deployed. The information during each step is uploaded to the online database and automatically analyzed, providing instantaneous information about quality of both components, performed tasks and whole modules. Final assembly of the whole system then takes place at University of Liverpool (Liverpool, UK) and is then transported to CERN (Geneva, CH).
