Finalizing the CBM-MVD Geometry: CAD and Simulation — •Philipp Klaus for the CBM-MVD collaboration — Goethe-Universität, Frankfurt
The Compressed Baryonic Matter experiment (CBM) at FAIR is a dedicated fix-target experiment designed to explore the QCD phase diagram in the region of high net-baryon density. The talk will review the concluding studies on the geometry of its Micro Vertex Detector (MVD) comprising up to four planar stations equipped with monolithic active pixel sensors close to the target. In order to perform optimally in different physics cases, tweaking the station positioning for each case is considered. In addition, recent updates of the sensor dimensions require small changes to the detector geometry.
In this process, it became evident that improved procedures and tools are required to keep mechanical integration models (CAD) and detector simulation models in sync. This contribution will discuss established methods and their advantages/disadvantages.
