Paper Abstract

The future LHC experiment, ATLAS, features a muon spectrometer in which the alignment system must control the spatial position of the muon chambers with an accuracy of 30 μm and 200 μrad in a range of displacements of ± 5 mm and ± 5 mrad. The alignment system described in this paper, called praxial, fulfils these requirements. The paper reviews the relative and absolute calibration procedures and the production of the 1005 praxial sensors needed in ATLAS.
