The Compressed Baryonic Matter experiment (CBM) at FAIR is a heavy-ion experiment that will investigate dense QCD matter by measuring nuclear collisions in the beam energy range 2−45 GeV/nucleon. Its main features are a high track-density environment at extreme interaction rates of up to 10 MHz. As the central detector component, the Silicon Tracking System (STS) is based on double-sided micro-strip sensors. Accurate detector modeling in simulations is crucial to assess the physics performance of the device and to arrive at a proper design choice.
The response of the silicon double-sided strip detector is included in the STS digitizer which simulates a complete chain of physical processes caused by charged particles traversing the detector, from charge creation in silicon to a digital output signal. Using the current implementation, one can test the influence of each physical processes on hit reconstruction separately. We have developed a new unbiased cluster position finding algorithm and a hit error estimation method for it. The estimated errors were verified using the hit pull and track χ2 distributions.
