P-Type Silicon Strip Sensors for the new CMS Tracker at HL-LHC Tracker Group of the CMS Collaboration; Akgün, B.; Ecklund, K.M.; Kilpatrick, M.; Nussbaum, T.; Zabel, J. doi:10.1016/j.nima.2013.06.067 Abstract: The upgrade of the LHC to the High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) is expected to increase the LHC design luminosity by an order of magnitude. This will require silicon tracking detectors with a significantly higher radiation hardness. The CMS Tracker Collaboration has conducted an irradiation and measurement campaign to identify suitable silicon sensor materials and strip designs for the...

Recent results of the 3D-stripixel Si detectors Z. Li, D. Bassignana, W. Chen, S. Liu, D. Lynn, G. Pellegrini Nuc. Instr. Meth. A, Volume 765, 21 November 2014, Pages 103–108 doi:10.1016/j.nima.2014.05.088 Abstract: The design, fabrication process and the characteristics measurements of the new 3D-stripixel detectors are presented in this paper. The optimized detectors design is simulated and analyzed with Sentaurus TCAD toolkit. The active area of the detector was studied with the laser transient current techniques (TCT) measurement. The characteristics of detector's 2D position sensitivity...

A portable readout system for silicon microstrip sensors R. Marco-Hernández Nuclear Inst. & Meth. A, Vol. 623, Issue 1, 1 November 2010, Pages 207-209 doi:10.1016/j.nima.2010.02.197 Abstract: This system can measure the collected charge in one or two microstrip silicon sensors by reading out all the channels of the sensor(s), up to 256. The system is able to operate with different types (p- and n-type) and different sizes (up to 3 cm2) of microstrip silicon sensors, both irradiated and non-irradiated. Heavily irradiated sensors will be used at the Super Large Hadron Collider, so this...
