Yuri Gershtein (Rutgers U.) "CMS Tracker for HL-LHC: an Exciting New Tool for Discovery"
July 10, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The radiation environment at the High Luminosity LHC requires CMS to
replace its silicon tracker with one that is more radiation hard and granular.
The new tracker is designed twenty years after the original one, and has new unique
capabilities. It spans 8 units in rapidity, is more then twice lighter, and is capable to
participate in the first level of trigger decisions. In this talk, after sketching the
HL-LHC physics case, I will describe the detector design, FPGA-based track reconstruction,
and focus on one of many possible new opportunities it provides for new physics searches.
