Abstract

The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the LHC is planning an upgrade of its muon detection system aiming to extend the muon detection capabilities in the forward region with the installation of new muon stations based on Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) and Resistive Plate Chambers (RPC) technologies during the so-called Phase-2 upgrade scenario. With the imminent increase on luminosity to 5x10_34cm-2s-1 and center of mass collision energy of 14 TeV an unprecedented and hostile radiation environment will be created, the most affected detectors will be the ones located in the forward region where the intense flux of neutrons and photons could potentially degrade the detector performance. Using FLUKA simulation the expected radiation environment is estimated for the regions of interest, possible shielding scenarios are proposed and the effect on the detector performance is discussed.
