The LUCID-2 detector

The LUCID-2 detector is the main online and ofline luminosity monitor of the ATLAS experiment. It is a compact Cherenkov detector made of photomultipliers with a 10 mm diameter quartz window acting as the Cherenkov medium. In order to provide a reliable luminosity measurement during years of data-taking, the LUCID-2 detector can use 104 different luminosity algorithms for each of the LHC colliding bunches. The detector stability is kept at a percent level thanks to an innovative monitoring system based on radioactive Bi-207 sources deposited on the photomultipliers quartz window. Combining the LUCID-2 measurement with those of other four ATLAS subdetectors, the luminosity has been estimated with a total uncertainty of 2.1% in 2015 and 2.2% in 2016.
