Special Issue "Upgrades in High Energy Physics Experiments"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2022 | Viewed by 3003
Interests: high energy physics
The most recent discoveries in high energy physics (HEP), both in the Higgs and in the flavor sector, which reached unprecedented precision, led to a solid confirmation of the standard model (SM) of the particle physics. To broaden our horizons and explore regions where physics beyond the SM could be hidden, all major (HEP) experiments are studying and realizing substantial upgrades to increase their performance and sensitivities. This will, in particular, allow to better understand subatomic particles properties as the spontaneous symmetry breaking and the violation of discrete CP symmetry by the weak interactions. If this technological effort provides new and sophisticated apparatuses, the huge amount of data that will be produced requires the development of complex and elaborate analysis techniques.
This Special Issue collected papers describing several examples of the extensive upgrade program on some of the largest experiments in high energy physics with a particular focus on their expected performance and the benefits for scientific research.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Title: The Phase-II upgrades of the CMS calorimetry and timing detectors

Title: The Phase-II upgrade of the ATLAS Muon Spectrometer AUTHORS
Authors: Davide Boscherini; Massimo Corradi; Oliver Kortner
Abstract: For its High-Luminosity (HL) phase, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will be upgraded to deliver a luminosity of 7.5x10
Specifically, the Muon Spectrometer will replace its trigger and readout electronics to make it compliant with the new ATLAS trigger architecture. All the muon detectors, including precision drift tube that were not used for triggering before, will participate to the new level-0 muon trigger that will provide muon candidates already close to offline reconstruction. The detectors in the innermost layer of the spectrometer will be upgraded to reduce the trigger rate and to improve the system redundancy. The endcap innermost layer will be already upgraded in 2022 with the New Small Wheels (NSW). In the innermost layer of the barrel spectrometer an additional triplet of new generation Resistive Plate Chambers (RPC) will be installed, together with the replacement of part of the drift tubes with new small-Monitored Drift Tube chambers (sMDT). The inner layer upgrade will be completed with new triple-layer thin-gap chambers (TGC) in the barrel-endcap transition region.
The solutions adopted in the design of the electronics and of the different types of detectors are reported, as well as the expected performance. Results from first prototypes are also presented.
