Physics Capabilities of the Silicon Vertex Tracker (SVT)

The SVT detector will enhance STAR capabilities for particle identification and momentum resolution and will extend the detector acceptance for low phenomena. It will offer unique capabilities for the study of strange and multi-strange particle production and in addition will allow HBT interferometry studies using neutral particles. The SVT will also expand the STAR third level trigger capabilities. These topics are discussed in more detail in the following.
