Performance of the CMS drift-tube chamber local trigger with cosmic rays


CMS Collaboration; Amsler, C; Chiochia, V; De Visscher, S; et al (2010). Performance of the CMS drift-tube chamber local trigger with cosmic rays. Journal of Instrumentation, 5(3):T03003.

Abstract

The performance of the Local Trigger based on the drift-tube system of the CMS experiment has been studied using muons from cosmic ray events collected during the commissioning of the detector in 2008. The properties of the system are extensively tested and compared with the simulation. The effect of the random arrival time of the cosmic rays on the trigger performance is reported, and the results are compared with the design expectations for proton-proton collisions and with previous measurements obtained with muon beams.
