The P̄ANDA fixed target experiment planned at FAIR will investigate fundamental questions of non-perturbative QCD. It makes use of a cooled antiproton beam (momentum: 1.5 to 15GeV/c) and will reach luminosities of up to 2.10 32cm -2s -1, yielding a p̄p-annihilation rate of 2.10 32s -1. One option for the central tracker of P̄ANDA is a cylindrical, ungated, continuously running TPC with GEM-based gas amplification stage.
