LiC Detector Toy - Tracking detector optimization with fast simulation and its application to the ILD design

Valentan, Manfred ; Regler, Meinhard ; Mitaroff, Winfried ; Fruhwirth, Rudolf


Abstract: The "LiC Detector Toy" is a fast single-track simulation and reconstruction tool, aiming at the optimization of tracking detector design, i.e. geometric layout and material budgets. Its implementation is based on the MATLAB system. Improvements over the last year include correct handling of complex forward regions (arbitrary mixture of cylindrical and plane surfaces), enhanced detector description, flexible data presentation of results (e.g. fitted track resolutions and impact parameters), and support by an integrated GUI. In addition a non-GUI version running under open-source OCTAVE has been implemented. The tool has recently been used for fixing the "reference design" layout of the silicon tracker (SIT, SET and FTD) of the ILD detector concept.
