Abstract

With the luminosity upgrade of the LHC machine (SLHC, Super-LHC), the Muon system of the ATLAS experiment at CERN will also need a detector upgrade in the highest rapidity region. MAMMA, Muon ATLAS Micromegas Activity, is an ongoing R&D activity with the aim to develop large detectors based on the bulk-Micromegas technology for use in the ATLAS Muon Spectrometer. Micromegas is a good potential candidate for the construction of large muon chambers that combine trigger and tracking capability and can sustain high particle rates expected at the SLHC. A medium size Micromegas prototype, in scale 1:10 of the final chambers, has been built and evaluated in the laboratory and in beam tests at CERN. Results from the analysis of test-beam data are presented. The results indicate that large size Micromegas is a viable candidate for ATLAS Muon upgrade
