Forward Vertex Tracker for PHENIX (FVTX)

Our current hardware project is the design and construction of a forward silicon tracking detector to compliment the physics capabilities of the muon spectrometers of PHENIX. UNM has played a significant role in the design, development, testing and construction of the FVTX, and plans to play a role in the data-taking and physics analysis with this new upgrade detector for PHENIX.
