LHCb OT Module Components
In the choice of cathode material,
we have profited from earlier work by ATLAS, HERA-B and COMPASS.
The basic design developed and tested in the R&D phase and
outlined in the
is summarized in this
TDR excerpt .
Since the TDR, the design of the Straw Tubes, while remaining
faithful to the concept outlined in the TDR,
has been optimized with the following goals:
These developements are discussed
in detail here, where also a
link to the document
concerning the technical specification and the strategy
for the quality assurance can be found.
improve the straw mechanical stability
improve the straw gas tightness
