Lay summary
Der Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) Detektor ist ein vielseitiges Experiment am Large Hadron Collider (LHC) am CERN, um grundlegende Eigenschaften von elementaren Teilchen und Kräften zu erforschen. Wissenschaftler der ETH Zürich, des Paul Scherrer Instituts und der Universität Zürich sind in Schlüsselpositionen am CMS Experiments vertreten. Dies beinhaltet Bau, Betrieb und Upgrade des Detektors, sowie Führungsrollen in der Analyse von Physikprozessen, wie der Untersuchung des Higgs Bosons oder von Top Quarks, der Suche nach Dunkler Materie, Supersymmetrie oder zusätzlichen räumlichen Dimensionen. Dieser Forschungsantrag enthält ein ausgewogenes Portfolio an Forschungstätigkeiten, die es uns erlauben, das Potential des CMS Experiments bestmöglich auszuschöpfen und zu optimieren. 
 
Der gemeinsame Forschungsantrag der drei Schweizer Institutionen am CMS Experiment ist aus verschiedenen Teilprojekten zusammengestellt, die den oben genannten Forschungszielen gewidmet sind. Teilprojekt A beschäftigt sich mit dem Bau einer Ersatzlage für die innersten Lage (Layer 1) des Phase-1 Pixeldetektor Upgrades.Teilprojekt B richtet sich nach dem Bedarf an Hochleistungsrechenkapazität (TIER 3 Computing) für die Ausführung innovativer Datenanalysen und dem Ausbau der Infrastruktur, der nötig ist, um die täglich wachsenden Datenmengen zu verarbeiten. Teilprojekt C widmet sich dem Unterhalt und der fortlaufenden Verbesserung des Kontrollsystems des ECAL-Detektors, das für eine effiziente Datennahme erforderlich ist. Teilprojekte D und E beinhaltet Forschungs- und Entwicklungstätigkeiten für neue Technologien, die für den Upgrade des CMS Phase-2 Spurdetektors und des CMS Phase-2 Kalorimeters unerlässlich sind. Teilprojekt F befasst sich mit Forschungstätigkeiten, die Anwendungen am HL-LHC, aber auch an zukünftigen Beschleunigern, zum Ziel haben. Es ist äusserst wichtig, sich bereits jetzt mit der Entwicklung dieser neuartigen Technologien zu befassen, da eine anhaltende und ausdauernde Forschungstätigkeit über mehrere Jahre von entscheidender Bedeutung ist. Des Weiteren beinhaltet dieser Forschungsantrag einen detaillierten Business-Plan für die Aktivitäten, die für den Zeitraum von 2019-2021und darüber hinaus vorgesehen sind. Der Business-Plan enthält eine Aufstellung der erwarteten Kosten für die benötigten Forschungsmittel und Meilensteine für die verschiedenen Projekte.

Abstract

The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector at CERN is one of two general-purpose experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The contributions of Swiss institutions and funding agencies to the construction of the CMS detector have been highly significant, most notably in the electromagnetic calorimeter (ECAL) and the pixel vertex (PIX) detector sub-components. These investments span more than 19 years of intense detector R&D and hardware development as well as engineering and construction. During this period, Swiss scientists have become world leaders in the respective detector technologies. Since 2010, the LHC has provided high-quality, high-statistics data sets using proton-proton collisions at the highest center-of-mass energies of 7, 8, and 13 TeV ever reached by a man-made particle accelerator, creating opportunities for important discoveries at the high energy frontier. Commensurate with the large investments made by the funding agencies and CMS institutions of Switzerland, Swiss scientists from ETH Zurich, the Paul Scherrer Institute and the University of Zurich, led by the eight principal investigators signing this proposal, are playing highly visible roles in the physics exploitation of these datasets acquired with CMS, most notably in the recent discovery of a Higgs boson particle, but also in searches for physics beyond the standard model, and precision standard model measurements. The funding for academic personnel afforded by the respective SNF base grants of the PIs has proven to be crucial for these successes. For the continued exploitation of the CMS experiment, infrastructure investments and technical support for high performance computing as well as engineering support for highly efficient detector operations are indispensable. Furthermore, the physics potential of the LHC will allow for a rich particle physics program for at least the next 20 years to come. In order to ensure the best physics exploitation of the ever-improving LHC capabilities in a correspondingly harsh and unprecedented radiation environment, the LHC detectors need to be upgraded, in a first (Phase I) step through 2020 and in a second step around 2024 (Phase II) as part of the High Luminosity operations of the LHC (HL-LHC). The LHC Experiments Committee (LHCC), Resources Review Board (RRB) and Upgrade Cost Group (UCG) have reviewed and approved the recently released Phase-II CMS Technical Design Reports (TDRs). This joint proposal of the three Swiss CMS institutions presents a well-balanced portfolio of subprojects dedicated to these aforementioned tasks. In particular, subproject A is dedicated to the construction of a replacement of the Layer-1 of the Phase-I upgrade of the barrel pixel detector. Subproject B deals with the demands on high performance (TIER3) computing infrastructure needed to perform cutting-edge data analysis and the necessity for moderate upgrades to cope with the ever-increasingly large datasets. Subproject C is dedicated to the maintenance and continuous improvement of the ECAL detector control system that is indispensable for high-efficiency data taking. Subprojects D and E presentthe work on the Phase-II upgrade for the pixel detector and for the barrel readout electronics, respectively. Subproject F and G deal with the research and development of detectors for the long term HL-LHC and future colliders. Such activities are very timely since the development of such new technologies need a persistent research effort over many years. The proposal furthermore presents a detailed business plan of these activities for the period 2019-2021 and beyond, including estimates for required resources and detailed project milestones.
