ATLAS LAr Calorimeter Commissioning for LHC Run-3
March 21, 2022
Liquid argon (LAr) sampling calorimeters are employed by ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) for all electromagnetic calorimetry in the pseudo-rapidity region |η| < 3.2, and for hadronic and forward calorimetry in the region from |η| = 1.5 to |η| = 4.9. After detector consolidation during a long shutdown, the LHC Run-2 started in 2015 and about 150 fb-1 of data at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV was recorded. With the end of Run-2 in 2019, a long period of shutdown began for the Phase-I detector upgrades. As part of the Phase-I upgrade, new trigger readout electronics of the ATLAS LAr calorimeter have been developed. Installation began at the start of the LHC shutdown in 2019 and is now completed, while a commissioning campaign is still underway to fully validate and improve stability of the new, higher granularity and precision Level-1 trigger system. This contribution gives an overview of the new trigger readout installation and commissioning, as well as the preparations for Run-3 detector operation and changes in the monitoring and data quality procedures to cope with the increased luminosity and pile-up.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
