Abstract

Since the discovery of the J/ψ in November 1974, there has been a strong interest in the physics of particles containing higher-flavour quarks; charm, bottom ...). High precision vertex detectors can be used to identify the decay products of parent particles which have lifetimes of the order 10−13 seconds. This paper summarises the performance achieved by a variety of techniques, and proceeds to a detailed discussion of the current status and potential of silicon detectors for high precision tracking.
