Simulation of CMS Phase 2 Pixel Tracker for HL-LHC
The High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) aims to increase luminosity by a factor of 10 beyond the LHC's design value. To cope with the increased rate of particle production without compromising physics performance, the LHC detectors will undergo an extensive upgrade. CMS will replace the current inner tracker system with a new silicon tracker which will feature increased forward acceptance, improved radiation hardness, higher granularity, and compatibility with higher data rates. We present a simulation study of the CMS Phase 2 pixel tracker that investigates the expected occupancy and tracking performance for various geometric and sensor granularity options.
