Das Silicon Tracking System und der Micro-Vertex Detector


Überblick über das Detektorsystem

The Silicon Tracking System (STS) is the central component of the CBM experiment. It serves for track and momentum measurement of all charged particles produced at the target. Between the target and the STS, a Micro-Vertex Detector (MVD) enables to distinguish particle decay vertices from the event vertex. A benchmark observable is the D meson (“open charm”), a rare probe that has to be identified via its hadronic decays $ D^0 \rightarrow K^-\pi^+ $ and $ D^\pm \rightarrow K^\mp\pi^\pm\pi^\pm $. This challenging task requires a detector with high position resolution, very low material budget, high radiation tolerance and a fast self-triggered readout.
