For the ATLAS ITk Strip Detector about 20000 modules of various designs need to be produced. Due to the wedge shape of
the petals, for the end-cap six different sensor designs are needed.
DESY will be one of the sites to produce about 2000 modules - 1500 in Zeuthen and 500 in Hamburg. The team was involved in the actual module design but also in the optimisation of the production procedure.
The photo is depicting the first R0 module which was produced in Zeuthen.
Besides designing and building the modules, the DESY upgrade team is heavily involved in radiation test studies of silicon sensors as well as materials (adhesives, electronics).
