- The CBM experiment at the future
facility FAIR at
GSI, Darmstadt will create highest baryon densities in nuclear collisions.
This superdense baryonic matter will allow for searching for the critical point in the QCD phase diagram
and for studying effects of chiral symmetry restoration.
Chiral symmetry and its breaking in strong interactions is intimately connected with the origin of
hadron masses. Among other interesting signals, charged D-mesons might carry information on effects
of chiral symmetry restoration. CBM will identify charged D-mesons by their displaced decay vertex
using its silicon tracking system.
