R&D Project 1:
Integration of a low-mass large-area silicon micro-strip detector system for particle tracking

Research Objective

The project aims at the system integration of a low-mass large-area silicon micro-strip detector for particle tracking. Particular focus is on the development of a high-density front-end electronics board for the readout of an ultra-light large-area silicon micro-strip tracker. The activities include an exploration of technologies suitable for a mass-production of the boards, the definition of procedures and tools for their assembly into tracking detector modules, and the definition of procedures for the module integration into the mainframe/thermal enclosure of the CBM micro-strip tracking system.
