Abstract
Diamond based pixel detectors are a promising radiation-hard technology for use at the LHC, We present first results on a CMS diamond pixel sensor. Wi th a threshold setting of 2000 electrons, an average pixel efficiency of 78 % was obtained for normally incident minimum ionizing particles. (C) 2001 E lsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
