Upgrade of the Central Trigger

  • Ruth PöttgenEmail author
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


When the LHC will resume operation in spring 2015 it will be with a higher centre-of-mass energy of up to 14 TeV and higher instantaneous luminosities of more than \(10^{34}\text {cm}^{-2}\text {s}^{-1}\). This will require a larger number of and more complex level-1 trigger items, especially since the maximum L1 rate will be limited to 100 kHz by the read-out rate of the sub-detectors.
