Construction and Commissioning of the CMS Pixel Barrel Detector

  • Lea Caminada
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


The CMS BPIX detector system was assembled and fully tested at PSI before it was transported to CERN [1]. A slice of the CMS control and data acquisition system has been setup at PSI in order to have a tool for operating and testing larger segments of the pixel detector.
