Abstract: The NA60 experiment at the CERN SPS studies dimuon production in nucleus-nucleus and proton-nucleus collisions. One of the main detectors in the apparatus is the silicon pixel vertex telescope, which tracks charged particles in the target region. This detector complements the information from the muon spectrometer, improving the dimuon mass resolution and signal-to-noise ratio of the experiment, overcoming the main limitations of its predecessors.
