CMS Collaboration


The High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) will begin operations in 2027 delivering pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 14 TeV at the unprecedented peak instantaneous luminosity of about 5-7.5x10^34 cm^-2s^-1, eventually reaching an integrated luminosity of 3000-4500 fb^-1.

To fully exploit the delivered luminosity and to cope with the challenging operating conditions the entire silicon Tracker of the CMS experiment will be replaced with a new low mass and high granularity detector, featuring increased radiation hardness, providing robust tracking in high track-density environment (up to 200 pileup events at the highest luminosity) as well as input for the Level-1 trigger.

In this contribution, we present the main design choices for the upgraded Tracker together with highlights from R&D and prototyping activities.
