Questions of the Referees:
- The foreseen parameters for the target Silicon detector is 150 m
thickness, 10 m strip distance, and 40 MHz
readout clock. Have there been prototype tests with such a detector
and readout system, and what are the results? In particular, what is the
signal-to-noise for minimum ionising particles?
- By how much would a 20 or 10 MHz readout clock increase the
deadtime for a) charm semileptonic decay,
b) search for double-charmed baryons, c) central production?
- After what time would it be necessary to change the target Silicon
detectors, when running at full proton intensity?
