The parameter space of silicon detectors can be large. For this reason, simulations can be useful tool to simplify the system to get a better understanding of the impact of different parameters .
The study to be presented aims to build a fundamental understanding of what affects time resolution of a detector. The focus of the presentation will be on how thickness influences time resolution. Simulations of simple planar pad and pixel devices without gain will be discussed. The simulations are performed with Garfield++.
