Title: A new inner layer silicon micro-strip detector for D0

Abstract

The D{O} experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron is building a new inner layer detector (Layer-0) to be installed inside the existing D{O} Silicon Micro-strip Tracker (SMT). The Layer-0 detector is based on R&D performed for the RunIIb silicon upgrade, which was canceled in the fall of 2003. Layer-0 will be installed between the bean pipe and the the 2.2cm radius opening available in the SMT support structure. The radius of the first sampling will be reduced from 2.7cm to 1.6cm. Layer-0 will be radiation harder than the current SMT, thus ensuring that the silicon tracker remains viable through Tevatron RunII.

  • The D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron has built a new inner layer detector (Layer 0) which is being installed inside the existing D0 Silicon Micro-strip Tracker. This one layer detector will reside inside the 2.2cm radius opening and will provide superior radiation hardness to the existing silicon detector, thus insuring that the silicon tracker remains viable through Tevatron Run II. There are several unique features to the design of the detector, which resides on a carbon fiber support structure, which maximize the signal-to-noise characteristics and reduce sensitivity to pickup. We also review radiation damage measurements of the current detectormore » at an integrated luminosity of one inverse femtobarn.« less

The Layer 0 detector is based on R&D performed for the RunIIb silicon upgrade that was canceled in the fall of 2003. Layer 0 will be installed inside the {approx}2.2 cm radius opening available in the D0SMT support structure with the detector in the collision hall. Layer 0 will reduce the radius of first sampling from 2.7 to 1.6 cm and substantially improve on the radiation hardness of the D0SMT, insuring that the silicon trackermore » remains viable through Tevatron RunII.« less
  • The D0 silicon micro-strip tracker (SMT) is part of the D0 upgrade for the Tevatron RunII at Fermilab. The detector has been running successfully since the start of the RunII physics data taking. The tracking and vertexing performance match the expectation from Monte-Carlo studies. An additional inner layer (Layer0) of silicon sensors at R = 1.6cm will be installed in 2005.
  • This paper describes the design, fabrication, installation and performance of the new inner layer called Layer 0 (L0) that was inserted in the existing Run IIa Silicon Micro-Strip Tracker (SMT) of the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron {bar p}p collider. L0 provides tracking information from two layers of sensors, which are mounted with center lines at a radial distance of 16.1 mm and 17.6 mm respectively from the beam axis. The sensors and readout electronics are mounted on a specially designed and fabricated carbon fiber structure that includes cooling for sensor and readout electronics. The structure has a thinmore » polyimide circuit bonded to it so that the circuit couples electrically to the carbon fiber allowing the support structure to be used both for detector grounding and a low impedance connection between the remotely mounted hybrids and the sensors.« less
