An X-ray scanner for wire chambers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The techniques to measure the position of sense wires and field wires, the gas gain and the gas flow rate inside wire chambers using a collimated and filtered X-ray beam are reported. Specific examples are given using barrel modules of the Transition Radiation Tracker of the ATLAS experiment. (C) 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
