Title: Operation and performance of the ATLAS tile calorimeter in LHC Run 2 | Status: Submitted
"The work of the LIP-ATLAS group has been crucial in the operation and performance of the second run of the ATLAS Hadronic Calorimeter (TileCal) and the recently submitted paper is here to prove it "
The ATLAS TileCal is the main hadronic calorimeter covering the central region of the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It is a sampling detector made of steel plates and scintillator tiles that absorbs energy from particles that are primarily hadrons and that pass through the ATLAS electromagnetic calorimeter.
Recently, the paper giving an overview of TileCal’s operation and performance during the years of 2015-2018 (Run 2) has been submitted for publishing and our ATLAS group at LIP is to thank for it.
The group’s work has contributed greatly to the experiment’s advancement. They led various activities and analyses: Detector Control System (DCS), calibration and radiation resistance studies, development of the laser system, regular participation in data control and maintenance, along with the major project to upgrade the detector's High Voltage supply system, which will bear fruit in the future.
