This document illustrates the technical layout and the expected performance of the Micro Vertex Detector (MVD) of the PANDA experiment. The MVD will detect charged particles as close as possible to the interaction zone. Design criteria and the optimisation process as well as the technical solutions chosen are discussed and the results of this process are subjected to extensive Monte-Carlo physics studies. The route towards realisation of the detector is outlined.

This document is the Technical Design Report covering the two large spectrometer magnets of the PANDA detector set-up. It shows the conceptual design of the magnets and their anticipated performance. It precedes the tender and procurement of the magnets and, hence, is subject to possible modifications arising during this process.

This document describes the technical layout and the expected performance of the Straw Tube Tracker (STT), the main tracking detector of the PANDA target spectrometer. The STT encloses a Micro-Vertex-Detector (MVD) for the inner tracking and is followed in beam direction by a set of GEM-stations.
The tasks of the STT are the measurement of the particle momentum from the reconstructed trajectory and the measurement of the specific energy-loss for a particle identification. Dedicated simulations with full analysis studies of certain proton-antiproton reactions, identified as being benchmark tests for the whole PANDA scientific program, have been performed to test the STT layout and performance. The results are presented, and the time lines to construct the STT are described.

This document presents the technical layout and the envisaged performance of the Electromagnetic Calorimeter (EMC) for the PANDA target spectrometer. The EMC has been designed to meet the physics goals of the PANDA experiment. The performance figures are based on extensive prototype tests and radiation hardness studies. The document shows that the EMC is ready for construction up to the front-end electronics interface.

This documents describes the technical design and the
expected performance of the Barrel DIRC detector for
the PANDA experiment.
The Barrel DIRC will provide hadronic charged particle
identification in the polar angle range of 22 to 140 deg
for particle momenta between 0.5 GeV/c and 3.5 GeV/c.
The design is based on the successful BaBar DIRC with
several key improvements.
The performance and system cost were optimized in
detailed detector simulations and validated with full
system prototypes using particle beams at GSI and CERN.
The final design meets or exceeds the PID goal of clean pi/K
separation with at least 3 standard deviations over the
entire phase space of charged kaons in the Barrel DIRC.
