SSD simulators SRS SLS
The SSD fast simulator is integrated into the SVT fast simulator module : SVT Resolution Simulator (SRS). The two main functions of the module are :

A module specific to the SSD has been developed in order to have a more realistic description of the behavior of a silicon microstrip wafer : the SSD Lazy Simulator (SLS). The main goal of this module is to convert geant hits into sequences of amplitudes on strips. In more details, this module :

The various steps, the objects used in SLS and the sls_strip type are described here.

It is functioning properly but needs further improvements such as a dependence of the amplitudes with respect to the incident angle of the particles and the non-uniform energy loss through the material. This module is currently not implemented in the official STAR library but the code can be found at /afs/
