CMS pixel detector phase-1 upgrade

Abstract: The CMS pixel detector is at the centre of the CMS experiment and is made of three barrel layers and four endcap disks. It is essential for the reconstruction of track seeds and secondary vertices. The CMS experiment is going to upgrade its pixel detector during Run 2 of the Large Hadron Collider. The new detector will provide an additional tracking layer and increased rate capability, suitable for the projected instantaneous luminosities of Run 2, well beyond the original design targets of the present pixel detector.
