Deployment of Large Test Array of MoEDAL Detectors



In january 2011 MoEDAL physicists deployed an array of 130 stacks of  Nuclear Track  Detectors (NTD), where each  stack consists  of 10 sheets of plastic NTD of area 25cm x 25cm. This deployment corresponds to roughly one third of  the full deployment that is slated for the long shutdown of the LHC. This test stack will be removed  and sent for analysis when the full MoEDAL detector (or a new test stack) is deployed.
