Improved Estimate of the Occupancy by Beamstrahlung Electrons in the ILD Vertex Detector

De Masi, Rita ; Winter, Marc


Abstract: The impact of the incoherent electron-positron pairs from beamstrahlung on the occupancy of the vertex detector (VXD) for the International Large Detector concept (ILD) has been studied, based on the standard ILD simulation tools. The occupancy was evaluated for two substantially different sensor technology in order to estimate the importance of the latter. The influence of an anti-DID field removing backscattered electrons has also been studied.
