High-sensitivity double-gap phenolic resistive plate chambers (RPCs) are studied for the Phase-2 upgrade of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) muon system at high pseudorapidity η. Whereas the present CMS RPCs have a gas gap thickness of 2 mm, we propose to use thinner gas gaps, which will improve the performance of these RPCs. To validate this proposal, we constructed double-gap RPCs with two different...
