On November 25, 2020, the insertion test of the MFT detector (Muon Forward Tracker) in the model of the central barrel cage of the experiment
ALICE was successfully passed at CERN. This crucial and delicate step is the result of intense production, assembly and quality testing work in which IP2I’s technical services have been very strongly involved.
This detector initiated and carried by the IP2I has the mission to improve substantially the vertexing capabilities of the muon spectrometer in view of runs 3 and 4 of the LHC.
