Abstract

The Silicon Tracker is a large-surface silicon micro-strip detector that covers the full acceptance of the experiment in a single tracking station upstream of the spectrometer magnet and the inner-most part of three tracking stations downstream of the magnet. Special emphasis has been put on module quality assurance at all stages of the production. Various tests are performed after each production step and each module goes through several burn-in cycles. The design of the LHCb silicon detectors is described and the main lessons learnt from the R&D phase are summarised. Focus will be on the experience from module production and the quality assurance program.
