The goal of the seminar is to discuss particle tracking systems at current and future high rate experiments. We want to cover various aspects of particle tracking, ranging from the detector devices, to detector and tracking systems, trigger concepts as well as reconstruction and analsyis techniques. These aspects will be put into perspective by discussing them in the context of different high rate experiments, e.g.

  • Belle II
  • CBM
  • LHCb
  • Mu3e
  • NA62
  • ...

Prerequisite for this seminar is the Particle Physics Master Course or a Bachelor Thesis in particle physics. The seminar consists of the oral presentation (40 minutes presentation + 20 minutes for discussion) of a research topic and a write-up of the talk (<= 10 pages, in the style of conference proceedings). (see Master Modulhandbuch) 

Time and Place

The seminar takes place on Fridays, from 11:00 to 13:00, in INF 226, 03.410.
We will start with an introduction on Friday, the 22nd of October 2021.


Please register through the Übungsgruppenverwaltung and contact one of the organisers. The distribution of talks will be done on a first come first served basis.



Here are linked two books with open access that can be useful to get an introduction into the content of the seminar:

  1. Pattern Recognition, Tracking and Vertex Reconstruction in Particle Detectors
