The ALPHA-detector: Module Production and Assembly
2012 (English)In: Journal of Instrumentation, ISSN 1748-0221, Vol. 7, C01051- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
ALPHA is one of the experiments situated at CERN's Antiproton Decelerator (AD). A Silicon Vertex Detector (SVD) is placed to surround the ALPHA atom trap. The main purpose of the SVD is to detect and locate antiproton annihilation events by means of the emitted charged pions. The SVD system is presented with special focus given to the design, fabrication and performance of the modules.
