Cooling Project (part-time)

In order to test the feasibility of extending ATLAS muon coverage, from the present maximum eta of 2.7 to as much as 4.5, with pixel detectors in the gap between the endcap calorimeter and the muon Small Wheel, we plan to install several pixel modules in this location during Long Shutdown 1 and gain operational experience in Run-2. The modules require cooling. This project is to investigate several options to find one that is most appropriate for this application: robust, easy to install and operate, small, and posing no danger to nearby equipment such as the beam pipe.
