Description

The ATLAS Transition Radiation Tracker (TRT) is an integral subsystem for precision tracking at ATLAS. In addition, transition radiation signatures allow for particle identification capabilities. Monitoring the performance of the TRT helps establish the necessary foundation for understanding higher level tracking reconstruction and particle identification. We present our current studies on how the TRT is performing, in particular as the number of interactions per bunch crossing increases.
