LHC Detector Construction at Duke
Above, Figure 1: TRT construction team. Missing people are ByeongRok Ko (now at Korea University) and Vassilios Vassilakopoulos (now at Hampton University) Top left: Jack Fowler (Engineer) inside the Atlas calorimeter where the TRT will be installed. Top right: Prof. Seog Oh and Jack Fowler working inside the experimental area. Bottom left: Dr. William Ebenstein working on the prototype module support structure. Bottom right: Dr. Chiho Wang in front of the installed TRT in the experimental area.
Above, Figure 2: TRT is being assembled. After the assembly, it is moved down to the experimental area. The outer diameter is about 2.1 meters (7 feet).
Above, Figure 3: A possible Higgs event registered in the ATLAS Inner Detector which consists of Pixel detector, Silicon detector and TRT. Each dot in the TRT represents a “hit” from a detector sensor called a straw tube as a charged track traverses the detector. The lines represent reconstructed tracks from the hits, and the towers outside the TRT represent the energy deposited in a calorimeter. The four straight lines moving out from the TRT region are muons (m) from the decay of a Higgs boson candidate, namely H0->Z0Z0->m+m-m+m-
