Phase i ibl concept
Phase I: IBL concept


  • Original ATLAS plans: replace B-layer after 3 years

  • Study group recommendation: add Insertable B-layer (IBL)

  • Smaller radius beam pipe

  • Next generation electronics: FE-I4 in 0.13 μm CMOS

  • Pixel size: 50 × 250 μm2

  • Sensor alternatives: n-in-n or 3D – or even diamond

  • Cooling alternatives: C3F8 or CO2

  • Stave designs: Monostave or Bistave



~19 mm







FE-I3 74%

FE-I4 ~89%

Phase i ibl project organization
Phase I: IBL project organization

  • Core estimate: 9 MCHF – including beam pipe

  • Aiming for installation 2013-2014

  • IBL project structure being put in place

  • Draft Technical Design Report (TDR)

  • Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) defined around deliverables:

    • Module (sensors, electronics, bump-bonding)

    • Stave (loading, opto, internal services)

    • Integration and installation

    • Off-detector (DAQ, DCS, Point-1 services)

Phase ii atlas upgrade
Phase II: ATLAS upgrade

  • Main challenges:

    • 400 collisions/BC

    • Radiation load at inner radius

    • Beam, cavern backgrounds

  • Completely new Inner Detector

  • Muons and forward calos also need upgrades

  • Install in 2018

  • Core estimate: 250 MCHF

  • In work:LoI, ready by 2010

  • MoU by 2011

Phase ii inner detector
Phase II: Inner detector

Several straw man lay-out studied, common features:

  • Current TRT volume replaced by large strips

  • Inner radius SCT needs short strips/long pixels

  • Outer radius Pixels: 50 × 250 μm2 (IBL)

  • Inner radius Pixels: Smaller pixels, extremely rad.hard sensors and electronics

    Possible track trigger: under investigation

Strategic approach
Strategic approach

  • Contributions to the present ATLAS/SCT serve as the starting point for the Norwegian Upgrade effort

  • Activities within the Advanced Instrumentation project are already geared toward contributing to an upgrade of the ATLAS Pixel subsystem

  • Participating in Phase I (IBL) will serve as a learning experience, bridging the gap – in time and technologically

  • Ultimately, the aim is to make a recognizable contribution to the Pixel upgrade for Phase II.

  • Project ran from 1998 – 2005

  • Collaboration with Uppsala (SE)

  • Delivered 1/6 of the SCT barrel modules

  • Norwegian contribution:

    • Core: 23 MNOK (1998)

    • Total: 44 MNOK (incl travel, personnel)

  • Project resources:

    • Clean rooms (UoB, UoO)

    • Electronics and mechanical workshops

    • Faculty and technical staff

    • Project personnel (engineers/Ph.D)

3d stave prototype bolle dorholt
3D stave prototype(Bolle, Dorholt)

  • IBL concept calls for a stave design

  • Large FE-I4 ASIC: 16 × 16 mm2

  • 3D tech allows μm-precision active edges

  • Demonstrator stave: Butted die-size sensor tiles

  • Recycled Pixel parts: FE-I3 and MCC

  • DRIE-cut 3D sensors and bump-bonding (Stanford MBC)

  • Carbon foam stave (LBNL)

  • Flex-hybrid and End-of-Stave controller (UoO)

Fast track reconstruction strandlie gjersdal
Fast track reconstruction(Strandlie, Gjersdal)

  • One of the most time consuming aspects of HEP data processing is track reconstruction, a fast track fitting algorithm is therefore crucial if track information is to be used on-line in a high luminosity enviroment like the sLHC.

  • The Kalman filter is the standard track reconstruction algorithm in HEP. Research done for the CBM experiment has shown that the speed of the Kalman filter can be greatly improved by :

    • Using an analytical approximation of the magnetic field

    • Rewriting the algorithm for single precision floats

    • Vectorizingthealgorithm (SIMD)

    • Using hardware specialized on parallel and vectorized computations (GPGPU, CELL BroadbandEngine)

  • These new ideas will be tried out for potential use in sLHC ATLAS (part of PhD project of HåvardGjersdal):

    • Implement an optimized Kalman filter in the ATLAS reconstruction software

    • Explore possible applications in a high level trigger.
