We are proposing to develop a tracking system for reconstruction of charged particle tracks in test beam environment. Such a tracking system is essential for evaluation of novel detectors in environments as close as possible to the final experiment. To determine the detector response to particle crossing its active volume we need to know exact particle trajectory, which can be determined with a tracking system. Tracking system will consist of modules of which each will consist of four detector planes of standard silicon micro-strip detectors, a standard in particle physics. The planes will be oriented perpendicular to each other so that they will measure horizontal and vertical coordinates. There will be one module on each side of a detector under test which will allow for reconstruction of four space points along the charged particle trajectory. We are aiming to the track resolution of about micrometer.
Significance for science
Charged Particle Tracking System is an important tool for continuation of research in test beams. The projects is very important for development of international collaboration of our researches and their regular meeting with researchers from top partner institutions. The project also brings possibilities for additional training and education of our researchers and younger collaborators.
Significance for the country
Collaboration of domestic electronic component producers offers opportunities for technology transfer and creation of spin-off companies. Recognition on international level build self-esteem of society.
