The Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) will cover a broad range in pseudorapidity,−4.5 ≤ η ≤ 4.5. To reconstruct particle tracks and momenta at all η values, gas tracking detectors with good momentum resolution will be needed in the forward (η > 1.0), backward (η < −1.0), and central (|η| ≤ 1.0) regions. The EIC handbook recommends tracking detectors capable of achieving momentum resolutions from σ p /p ∼ (0.05%) p + 1.0% in the central region, to σ p /p ∼ (0.1%) p + 2.0% for the forward/backward regions. Additionally, gas based tracking detectors can also be used for particle ID. Presented in this poster is a brief summary of selected tracking detectors which are being investigated for use at an EIC in the central and forward/backward η regions that are based on micro-pattern gas detector technologies.
