  • Published: 01 Nov 2012
The Insertable B-layer (IBL) is a fourth pixel layer that will be added inside the existing ATLAS pixel detector during the long LHC shutdown of 2013 and 2014. The new four layer pixel system will ensure excellent tracking, vertexing and b-tagging performance in the high luminosity pile-up conditions projected for the next LHC run. The peak luminosity is expected to reach 3 x 10^34 cm^-2 s^-1 with an integrated luminosity over the IBL lifetime of 300 fb^-1 corresponding to a design lifetime fluence of 5 x 10^15 n_eq cm^-2 and ionizing dose of 250 Mrad including safety factors. The production front-end electronics FE-I4B for the IBL has been fabricated at the end...
