Hybrid Pixel Detectors

We aim at developing an integrated hybrid pixel tracking detector. This project is a successor to the R&D completed for the BTeV project. The readout architecture will be based on the successful FPIX-2.1 design. Goals are to explore the degree to which the amount of material per measurement can be reduced by reducing the cooling requirements through power management and by the use of thin components, while still maintaining very high efficiency and good time resolution and pattern recognition capabilities useful for triggering as well as offline data reconstruction.
