The envisaged upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN towards the Super-LHC (SLHC) with a 10 times increased luminosity of 10 cm 2 s 1 will present severe challenges for the tracking detectors of the SLHC experiments. Unprecedented high radiation levels and track densities and a reduced bunch crossing time in the order of 10 ns as well as the(More)
The proposed luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider (S-LHC) at CERN will demand the innermost layers of the vertex detectors to sustain fluences of about 10 hadrons/cm. Due to the high multiplicity of tracks, the required spatial resolution and the extremely harsh radiation field new detector concepts and semiconductor materials have to be explored(More)
In the framework of the CERN-RD50 Collaboration, the adoption of p-type substrates has been proposed as a suitable mean to Improve the radiation hardness of silicon detectors up to fluences of 1016n/cm2. In this work the simulated electrical characteristics of Irradiated p-type and n-type detectors are reported, for comparison with experimental measurements(More)
