The Scintillating Fibre Tracker TWiKi



  1. Please upload documents to EDMS or CDS. Not the TWiki. Pictures are ok.
  2. Topic (Page) names should start with SciFi (i.e. SciFiTopic) to prevent accidental overlap with other LHCb groups.
  3. Formatting information can be found here and here.
  4. Please see SciFiTopicMap for existing pages and links. (Takes a minute to load.)

Project Organisation and Management

SciFi Indico - SciFi Meetings

SciFiReviewsDocuments - TDR, EDR, PRR and Other Documents

SciFiWorkPackages - The organizational structure and work packages of the SciFi Tracker project.

Naming Conventions


All major items (e.g. mats, modules, cold boxes, etc.) shall be identified and labelled using the LHCb and CERN wide convention described in this document. These labels serve also as unambiguous identifiers of equipment which needs to be entered and removed from the point 8 underground area. If, unexpectedly, unlabelled 'minor equipment', like a cable tray, a fibre support plate etc. needs to be removed, it will receive a label in an ad-hoc way. Further details regarding special rules for cables and specific part naming and Labeling can be found here: SciFiLabeling
