The pixel detector of CMS can be used to reconstruct very low PT charged particles down to about 0.1 GeV/c. This can be achieved with high efficiency, good resolution and a negligible fake rate for elementary collisions. In the case of central PbPb collisions the fake rate can be kept low for PT > 0.4 GeV/c. In addition, the detector can be employed for identification of neutral hadrons (VOs) and converted photons.
