The ATLAS Transition Radiation Tracker (TRT) proportional drift tube: design and performance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


title = "The ATLAS Transition Radiation Tracker (TRT) proportional drift tube: design and performance",
abstract = "A straw proportional counter is the basic element of the ATLAS Transition Radiation Tracker (TRT). Its detailed properties as well as the main properties of a few TRT operating gas mixtures are described. Particular attention is paid to straw tube performance in high radiation conditions and to its operational stability.",
