The Silicon Transition Radiation Detector (SiTRD) consists of multiple modules each composed by a radiator and a silicon strip detector operating inside a magnetic field region. This design allows to well separate inside the detector volume the charged particle with respect to the transition radiation X-rays eventually produced in the radiator. In this paper we will show the results of a beam test performed at low momenta, up to 5 GeV/c, with a reduced scale detector prototype. We have also implemented a full Monte Carlo simulation to design a SiTRD for an accelerator a cosmic ray experiment at higher momenta, up to 100 GeV/c. We have simulated two different detector configurations and we have studied their performance. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
