Colaboração na Experiência ATLAS (ATLAS - Upgrade)

Type: National Project

Duration: from 2015 Mar 01 to 2017 Feb 28

Financed by: FCT

Prime Contractor: LIP - Laboratório de Instrumentação e Física Experimental de Partículas (Other) - Lisboa, Portugal

The aim of this proposal is to apply for funding to support the Portuguese participation in the ATLAS experiment for the next two years. After three years of very successful data taking at 7 and 8 TeV centre of mass energy, and a two-year long shutdown, the LHC is about to start the Run 2 pp collisions at 13 TeV. The ATLAS detector will re-start data taking with improved capabilities such as an additional inner detector layer and improved fake muon rejection, network/readout infrastructure and data-flow design in the Trigger/DAQ system. Our activities are concentrated in Physics and Performance studies with collisions data and detector Maintenance and Operations (M&O). Our commitments and responsibilities in data acquisition and analysis, as well as detector M&O, imply dedicated activities in Portugal and at CERN.
