The CDF silicon vertex tracker

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Silicon Vertex Tracker (SVT) is presently being built as part of CDF upgrades. It is the online tracker which will reconstruct 2D tracks using information from the Silicon Vertex Detector (SVXII) and the Central Outer Chamber (COT). The precision measurement of the track impact parameter will allow to select high statistics b samples at trigger level and attack the study of CP violation in the b sector (i.e. in the B<sup>0</sup><sub>d</sub> {yields} {pi}<sup>+</sup>{pi}<sup>-</sup> decay) and of B<sup>0</sup><sub>s</sub> mixing. We discuss the overall architecture, algorithms and hardware implementation of the system.
