Class Acts::PlaneLayer

class PlaneLayer : public virtual Acts::PlaneSurface, public Acts::Layer

Class to describe a planar detector layer for tracking, it inhertis from both, Layer base class and PlaneSurface class.

Public Functions

PlaneLayer() = delete
PlaneLayer(const PlaneLayer &pla) = delete
~PlaneLayer() override = default
PlaneLayer &operator=(const PlaneLayer&) = delete
virtual const PlaneSurface &surfaceRepresentation() const override

Transforms the layer into a Surface representation for extrapolation.


returns a reference to a PlaneSurface

virtual PlaneSurface &surfaceRepresentation() override

Public Static Functions

static inline MutableLayerPtr create(const Transform3 &transform, std::shared_ptr<const PlanarBounds> pbounds, std::unique_ptr<SurfaceArray> surfaceArray = nullptr, double thickness = 0., std::unique_ptr<ApproachDescriptor> ad = nullptr, LayerType laytyp = Acts::active)

Factory for a shared plane layer.

  • transform – which places the layer in the global frame

  • pbounds – the planar bounds that define the layer dimensions

  • surfaceArray – is the surface array that holds the sensitive surfaces

  • thickness – is the thickness of the layer (normal direction to plane)

  • ad – is the approach descriptor for describing the approach surface

  • laytyp – is the layer type
