Progress in particle tracking and vertexing detectors

  title={Progress in particle tracking and vertexing detectors},
  author={Nicolas Fourches and University Paris-Saclay},
  journal={arXiv: Instrumentation and Detectors},
This is part of a document, which is devoted to the developments of pixel detectors in the context of the International Linear Collider. From the early developments of the MIMOSAs to the proposed DotPix I recall some of the major progresses. The need for very precise vertex reconstruction is the reason for the Research and Development of new pixel detectors, first derived from the CMOS sensors and in further steps with new semiconductors structures. The problem of radiation effects was… Expand
