Strip segmentation

Strip segmentation

Strips measure θ

Strip pitch: 3.2 mm

Typical number of strips in a gas-volume : D1/D2/D3: 400/360/360

Therefore main contribution to overall channel number: 280K out of 360K

Size of active volumes all designed to hold exactly (n+½) strips.

To avoid problems of track hitting inter-strip gaps in more than one layer, strips are staggered across layers:

Layers 1 and 3: ½,1,1,1,1,1,1,…

Layers 2 and 4: …..,1,1,1,1,1,½

Note: this is not really needed because lack of projectivity does the job since θ●Δz > pitch. (“Maximum shuffling” argument)


Wire staggering

Wire staggering

Avalanche is late if originates half the distance between two wires, causing inefficiency.

Since we want a 3 out 4 trigger, wires have to be staggered in 4 planes of modules to avoid situations with two late avalanches.

Reminder: wires measure “φ”.

Bending angles and distances involved make this possible in the following arrangement:

0, ¼, ¾, ½


Wire group segmentation

Wire group segmentation

  • Wires are bundled in “groups”,

    which are themselves staggered

    in the 4 layers by 0, ¼, ½, ¾.

  • Group size:

    • D0 : 20 (not read out)

    • D1 : 10 , Δφ = 13/8 mrad at high/low η

    • D2 : 20 , Δφ = 16/10 mrad at high/low η

    • D3 : 20 ,Δφ = 10/8 mradat high/low η

  • VMM channel filling

    • from 45 to 64 (out of 64 max.)

  • Rates: see slides prepared for tomorrow’s discussion

In real l ife

In real life

  • Pad size is a compromise between :

    • Number of channels

    • Individual rate

  • Each quadruplet is built from two face-to-face doublets

    • η fuzziness achieved for free by Z

    • φ fuzziness achieved by construction

  • Typical pad height ~80 mm (~25 strips)
