Track: Coupled sensors and monolithic architectures
Active pixel sensors in high-voltage CMOS technologies combine the possibility to equip the sensor segments with complex electronics and a drift-based signal collection. High radiation tolerance has been demonstrated, which makes the technology interesting for LHC applications. We have designed a small pixel sensor demonstrator that can be readout using existing pixel or strip-readout systems. In this way, we replace the presently used diode-based sensors with "intelligent" pixel sensors, which should improve the characteristics of the detector. Smaller pixel size, clustering, or simultaneous readout of two sensor layers, are theoretically possible.
