Introduction

ID_newTRT_d3. Figure 1: Cut-away view of the ATLAS inner detector.
FigID26-mod-011107_crop. Figure 2: Plan view of a quarter-section of the ATLAS inner detector showing each of the major elements with its active dimensions.

Those tracks which have been incorrectly reconstructed with a positive charge are indicated by the shaded regions. At 2TeV, the fraction of electrons (muons) whose charge has been misidentified is 12.8% (13.7%).

Figure 17: Rate of candidate fake tracks as a function of pT for |η|< 2.5 and pT> 0.1GeV (upper) and as a function of |η| (lower) in minimum bias events (non-diffractive inelastic events). The rate of such tracks is a function of the amount of material, indicating that a large fraction of them are secondaries for which the Monte-Carlo truth information is not kept

Figure 20: Resolution for the reconstruction of the radial position of the secondary vertex for three-prong hadronic τ-decays in Z→ττ events for tracks with |η| around 0 (upper) and as a function of the pseudorapidity of the τ (lower). In the lower plot, the circles with bars correspond to Gaussian fits, as illustrated in the upper plot; the points showing 68.3% (95%) coverage show the width of the integrated distribution containing 68.3% (95%) of the measurements (corresponding to 1σ (2σ) for a Gaussian distribution). The τ-leptons have an average transverse momentum of 36GeV.

The true J/ψ mass is shown by the vertical line.

convPlot_r.
convPlot_eta. Figure 37: Efficiency to identify conversions of photons with pT=20GeV and |η|<2.1, as a function of the conversion radius (upper) and pseudorapidity (lower). The overall efficiency is a combination of the efficiency to reconstruct the conversion vertex, as shown also in Fig. 36, and of that to identify single-track conversions
