Description A testing framework for cutting edge electronic modules vital for the operation of the ATLAS trigger system has been achieved.
The PCBs (printed circuit boards) wrere tested and either verified the operational status, or found mal-connections that were subsequently fixed.

On the Top Quark analysis side: major progress has been achieved in terms of the robustness of the analysis techniques concerning a New Physics topic, namely the search for charged lepton flavour violation (cLFV) in top quark decays. This topic is of particular importance and interest among the High Energy Physics community.
Work on this subject is ongoing. The analysis techniques are proving to be a good basis for extending the scope of the topic to include more searches related to cLFV.
Exploitation Route Already the tested modules have been and are curently used by CERN's ATLAS experiment in preparation for the long-awaited Run 3.

The anlaysis techniques concerning the High Energy Physics topic (searches in Top quark sector) have formed the ground for original New Physice results, as well as for the extension of the topic to related areas of Physics (with the education of new PhD researchers happening in parallel).
