Abstract

In the context of the upgrade project of the ATLAS Muon system, we report on the construction of Micromegas detectors with an active area of 2 to 3 m\(^2\). The validation of the construction procedure is proven with results obtained with prototype detectors showing 100 \(\upmu \)m spatial resolution in the precision coordinate and above 98% efficiency.
