Development, Characterization, and Analysis of Silicon Microstrip Detector Modules for the CBM Silicon Tracking System

Pfistner, Patrick

Abstract (englisch):

The future Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) at GSI, Germany, will enable
scientists to create tiny droplets of cosmic matter in the laboratory—matter subject
to extreme conditions usually found in the interior of stars or during stellar
collisions. The Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) experiment at FAIR aims to explore the
quantum chromodynamics (QCD) phase diagram at high densities and moderate temperatures.
By colliding heavy ions at relativistic beam energies, the conditions inside
these supermassive objects can be recreated for an exceptionally short amount of time.
The CBM detector is a fixed-target multi-purpose detector designed for measuring hadrons, electrons
and muons in elementary nucleon and heavy-ion collisions over the full FAIR beam energy
range delivered by the SIS100 synchrotron.

One of the core detectors of CBM is the Silicon Tracking System (STS), responsible for
measuring the momentum and tracks of up to 700 charged particles produced in a
central nucleus-nucleus collisions. Due to the required momentum resolution, the material budget
of the STS must be minimized. Therefore, the readout electronics and the cooling and mechanical
