We describe a system test of the ATLAS muon spectrometer performed at the H8 beam line of the CERN Super-Proton-Synchrotron (SPS) during 2003. The setup includes one barrel tower made of six Monitored Drift Tube chambers equipped with an alignment system and four Resistive Plate Chambers, and one end-cap octant consisting of six end-cap MDT equipped with an alignment system and one triplet and two doublets of Thin Gap Chambers. Many system aspects of the muon spectrometer have been studied with this setup, from the performance of the precision and trigger chambers to the capability to align the precision chambers at the level of a few tens of micrometers and to operate the muon trigger at the crossing frequency of the LHC.

Abstract

We describe a system test of the ATLAS muon spectrometer performed at the H8 beam line of the CERN Super-Proton-Synchrotron (SPS) during 2003. The setup includes one barrel tower made of six Monitored Drift Tube chambers equipped with an alignment system and four Resistive Plate Chambers, and one end-cap octant consisting of six end-cap MDT equipped with an alignment system and one triplet and two doublets of Thin Gap Chambers. Many system aspects of the muon spectrometer have been studied with this setup, from the performance of the precision and trigger chambers to the capability to align the precision chambers at the level of a few tens of micrometers and to operate the muon trigger at the crossing frequency of the LHC.
