The CMS Silicon Strip Tracker

  • Oliver Pooth


The inner tracking system is designed to measure as precisely as possible the trajectories of charged particles with a full silicon based system. Originally CMS was foreseen to use two different detector technologies in the central strip tracking part: silicon based strip detectors and micro strip gas chambers (MSGC, [32]) in the outer regions. Finally in the year 1999 the CMS collaboration decided to use a full silicon solution for the entire tracking device, because of superior radiation hardness and dropping prices for silicon sensors.
