Abstract
ATLAS (The ATLAS Technical Proposal, CERN/LHCC 94-33) is one of the large e lectronic particle detectors at LHC (The LHC Conceptual Design, Report- The Yellow Book, CERN/AC/95-05(LHC)) which will become operational in 2005. It is planned to use radiation tolerant optical links for the data transfer f rom the SemiConductor Tracker (SCT) (ATLAS Inner Detector Technical Proposa l, CERN/LHCC 97-16 & CERN/LHCC 97-17). and Pixel Detector (ATLAS Pixel Dete ctor Technical Proposal, CERN/LHCC 98-13) systems to the acquisition electr onics over a distance up to 140m. The overall architecture and the performa nce of these optical data links are described. One of the three candidate d esigns for an on-detector Opto-Package is presented.
