Performance study of the CMS barrel resistive plate chambers with cosmic rays


CMS Collaboration; Amsler, C; Chiochia, V; De Visscher, S (2010). Performance study of the CMS barrel resistive plate chambers with cosmic rays. Journal of Instrumentation, 5(3):T03017.

Abstract

In October and November 2008, the CMS collaboration conducted a programme of cosmic ray data taking, which has recorded about 270 million events. The Resistive Plate Chamber system, which is part of the CMS muon detection system, was successfully operated in the full barrel. More than 98% of the channels were operational during the exercise with typical detection efficiency of 90%. In this paper, the performance of the detector during these dedicated runs is reported.
