ATLAS Muon Spectrometer

Muon Upgrade Phase II

The ATLAS muon spectrometer is operated in a large background of neutrons and γ rays. In order to cope with background counting rates of up to 15 kHz/cm 2 the so-called ``small wheel'' will be replaced by a new small wheel (NSW) with chambers with increased high-rate capability in the long shutdown 2. The other muon spectrometer upgrades will be carried out in long shutdown 3. In the NSW small strip TGCs (sTGCs) will be used for triggering while MicroMegas will be used for precision tracking and a refined muon momentum measurement at trigger level. The big wheel's TGCs closest to the beam pipe will be replaced with TGCs with higher spatial resolution to increase the selectivity of the 1st level muon trigger. New thin-gap RPCs will be added to the inner barrel layer to close acceptance gaps of the barrel muon trigger. To free space for the RPCs MDT chambers will need to be replaced by so-called ``sMDT chambers'' which are drift-tube chambers with 15 mm diameter tubes instead of 30 mm diameter tubes. In order to identify muons within the whole acceptance of the upgraded inner detector of |ηl<4.0 a muon tagger will be added close to the beam pipe between the forward calorimeter and the shielding disk of the NSW. Finally the new trigger architechture will require new on- and off-chamber electronics.
