MDT chambers, the precision tracking system of the ATLAS muon spectrometer, have to operate for 10 years in the harsh LHC background environment mainly due to low energy photons and neutrons. The expected overall maximum count rate is . Moreover the upgrades for S-LHC will involve fluxes ten times higher than that at LHC. To study the behavior of MDT chambers under massive irradiation of gammas and neutrons at level of S-LHC, three extensive tests were performed at the ENEA-Casaccia Research Centre Facilities, irradiating several test detectors. The results about the drift properties, gas gain and tracking performances, both at high rates and after massive irradiation, are given.
We exposed a prototype of the lead-scintillating fiber KLOE calorimeter to neutron beam of 21, 46 and 174 MeV at The Svedberg Laboratory, Uppsala, to study its neutron detection efficiency. This has been found larger than what expected considering the scintillator thickness of the prototype. %To check our method, we measured also the neutron %detection efficiency of a 5 cm thick NE110 scintillator. We show preliminary measurement carried out with a different prototype with a larger lead/fiber ratio, which proves the relevance of passive material to neutron detection efficiency in this kind of calorimeters.
