260 megavoxel camera with continuous readout - the upgraded ALICE TPC — •Laura Fabbietti for the ALICE collaboration — JamesFranckstr. 1

The ALICE Time Projection Chamber (TPC) is the world largest detector of this type. It is the main tracking and PID device of the ALICE detector. It is currently being upgraded with a new readout system, including new GEM-based Readout Chambers and new front-end electronics. The upgraded TPC will operate in continuous mode, recording the full minimum-bias interaction rate of 50 kHz in Pb-Pb offered by the LHC in Run 3 and beyond. This will result in a significant improvement on the sensitivity of rare probes*that are considered key observables to characterise the QCD matter created in such*collisions. In this presentation I will discuss the physics potential of the upgraded TPC and show the status of the TPC upgrade activities during the ongoing LHC Long Shutdown 2. First results of the commisioning tests will be presented.
