First measurements with a radiation hard relative humidity sensor for the ATLAS Experiment

Abstract

A radiation hard humidity sensor, based on an inter-digital structure is developed for the upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to high-luminosity LHC (HL-LHC). In this context, the interior of the detector of the ATLAS Experiment will be replaced. To guarantee a failure-free operation over the whole time, it has to be proven that the humidity in the detector region is negligible. To achieve the required very small size of the humidity sensor, double-sided wafer processing is used; furthermore the inter-digital structures consist of 3D fingers to decrease the necessary area. The otherwise customary but not radiation hard polymer as a sensitive layer is replaced by an SiO2 matrix. In order to overcome the great distance between sensor and data processing, very compact signal preprocessing is also necessary.
