The Compact Muon Solenoid, CMS, and other detectors at LHC are in the process of being upgraded for the HL-LHC (High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider) which will produce more than 5 times the particle interactions than of the current LHC. One upgrade to CMS is the introduction of new GEM detectors (Gaseous Electron Multiplier), GE2/1 and ME0 shown at right are new detectors to CMS and therefore must be tested thoroughly prior to being installed.
