Title: Pixel Detector Developments for Tracker Upgrades of the High Luminosity LHC

Abstract

This paper reports on the INFN (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare, Italy) research activity in collaboration with FBK foundry, which is aiming at the development of new pixel detectors for the LHC Phase-2 upgrades. The R&D covers both planar pixel devices and 3D detectors built using columnar technology. All sensors are low thickness n-in-p type, as this is the general direction envisaged for the High Luminosity LHC pixel detector upgrades. Hybrid modules with 100  $$\upmu $$ m and 130  $$\upmu $$ m active thickness, connected to the PSI46dig readout chip, have been tested on beam test experiments. Selected preliminary results from test beams are described for both planar and 3D devices. The results on the 3D pixel sensors before irradiation are very satisfactory and support the conclusion that columnar devices are very good candidates for the inner layers of the upgrade pixel detectors.
