Abstract [en]

This document describes the tests of the quality control procedure for the ATLAS TileCal digitizer unit. Since the ATLAS detector will fill most of the space in the detector cavity it will be difficult to disassemble parts of the detector. Therefore quality control is extremely important for every part of ATLAS. In Stockholm the digitizer units are tested in a testbench to ensure functionality and reliability in the ATLAS environment. The document includes a brief description of the ATLAS TileCal digitizer system and a description of the testbench setup. It also includes a description of the tests preformed and of the quality control procedure developed in Stockholm together with a production status.

Abstract [en]

The new LHC particle accelerator now being built at CERN will have a radically increased event rate and higher energy. To accommodate this, instrumentation for LHC experiments has had to be constructed using new ideas and the latest available technology. A part of this effort was the development and test of a digitizer unit for the hadron calorimeter (TileCal) of the ATLAS experiment.

To try out ideas and promote system integration, prototypes were tested in a subsystem using a particle beam to simulate the final conditions. During the development of these prototypes an application-specific integrated circuit was constructed to control the digitizer system. Tests made at the test beam facility have verified that all requirements were met.

The final digitizer design and its components were radiation tested to verify full functionallity in its radiation environment during the full ATLAS life-span. Test devices were also constructed to test all production units.

In addition to the digitizer system, an optical readout link was designed to meet the requirements for the digitizer readout.

Preliminary studies indicate that the digitizer could also be used in an upgraded LHC, with presently considered scenarios.

Abstract [en]

This thesis comprises two parts. In the first part an overview is given of the Standard Model, Supersymmetry and R-hadrons. R-hadrons are predicted within the framework of the Split-SUSY theory, in which the gluino can have a sufficiently long lifetime to hadronise into so-called R-hadrons. These will then propagate through the ATLAS detector as (meta)stable particles. The R-hadrons, which interact strongly, have the property of changing electric charge in interactions as they move through matter. In this thesis a strategy to search for R-hadrons with the ATLAS detcector is developed.

The second part describes the ATLAS detector and the developement of the digitizer system of the ATLAS hadronic calorimeter. The digitizer system is the digitial readout system, in which data is read out from the detector to data buffers via an optical link. In the LHC environment, the operation of radiation-hard circuitry is essential. Therefore a quality control program was used to control that the design conforms to the requirements of radiation tolerance. An important part of the work was to test the devices to study their functionality and properties. This work is described in this thesis.
