LHCb Outer Tracker

Station Overview


 
   
   
 

Detailed discussions of the OT Station design and of the installation procedures can be found in: A set of 3D drawings showing a global view of the Outer Tracker Station Assembly is shown below . These drawings, based on several interactions with the central LHCb infrastructure experts, reflect present-day (31/3/2005) knowledge and are preliminary.

With respect to the station design contained in the Technical Design Report a drastic revision took place in 2003. The main change with respect to the TDR was the additional requirements that each quarter station (two of the four layers on the same side of the beam-pipe) could be moved independently from the rest of the detector. The new design requirements and constraints were summarized in a writeup.
