Research output: Article


A study of a possible layout of a Silicon tracker has been done. The design is based on simulations done in the context of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector for the LHC. The high granularity of the silicon strip detectors yields to low occupancies. New type of a silicon strip detector, single sided stereo angle detector (SSSD), has been designed to match the requirements of a LHC tracker. This detector allows a z-coordinate measurement without increasing the number of channels i.e. power consumption and it facilitates a tracker design with reasonable complicity.
