SSD and tracking performances
In order to quantify the impact of the SSD on the STAR tracking performances, various simulations have been performed for the SSD Technical Proposal. Tracking efficiency and ghost track probability have been calculated for two different vertex detector geometries (SVT only and SVT+SSD) and two tracking chains (tfs+stk+svm and tfs+est) :
