Lars Eklund: LHC detector upgrades

Friday, 14 June 2019 from to (Europe/London)
at Schuster ( 54-6-6.40 - Niels Bohr Common Room )
Description
The physics programmes of the LHC detectors have been very successful, continuously producing exciting new results. The LHC accelerator and detectors will continue to operate at increased luminosity for at least another two decades, and with that the physics exploitation programme will continue. The success of this programme requires upgrades of the LHC detectors to meet the challenging environment of the higher luminosity operation and to improve the performances of the detectors. I will review the LHC detector upgrades that started already in the first long LHC shutdown and that will continue at least until 2030. I will discuss the past, current and future work on the ATLAS, CMS and LHCb detectors and trigger systems, with some emphasis on the LHCb upgrade as the first major upgrade being installed at the moment.
