Paper Abstract

The D0 collaboration is upgrading its existing detector to provide enhanced functionality for physics is the Fermilab Main Injector Era, when the luminosity of the Tevatron Collider will evolve to levels in excess of 1032 cm-2 sec-1 in combination with reduction of the beam crossing interval to 132 nsec. The D0 upgrade retains the strengths of the existing detector which include hermetic coverage in fine-grained liquid argon calorimetry and muom detection using magnetized iron toroids and combines there with a new magnetic central tracking system based upon scintillating fiber and silicon strip technologies in a 2 Tesla solenoidal field. This paper summarizes briefly the elements of the upgrade and the central fiber tracker and presents recent measurements of performance of fiber tracking technology using the cosmic ray test facility at Fermilab.
