Research Project Description.
This research aims to calibrate the temperature sensors on the silicon pixel detector. The calibration of the temperature sensor is done to eliminate the discrepancy between the environmental temperature of the detector and the temperature provided by the read-out chip. To calibrate the temperature sensors, a graphical representation of the temperatures from both the detector and the environment is analyzed to find a correlation between them. From this, a secondary test is run using an infrared camera to confirm the nature of the relationship between the temperatures. Using these methods, some results were obtained and lead to a deeper understanding of how the read-out chip heats up during the cooling process.
