The LHCb Silicon Tracker: lessons learned (so far)


LHCb Silicon Tracker Group; Straumann, U; Anderson, J; Bernet, R; Buechler, A; Chiapolini, N; Hangartner, V; Salzmann, C; Steiner, S; Steinkamp, O; van Tilburg, J; Vollhardt, A (2008). The LHCb Silicon Tracker: lessons learned (so far). In: Vasey, F; Dho, E. Topical Workshop on Electronics for Particle Physics 2008. Genf: CERN , 223-227.

Abstract

The LHCb Silicon Tracker is part of the main tracking system of the LHCb detector. It covers the full acceptance angle in front of the dipole magnet in the Tracker Turicensis (TT) station and the innermost part in the three Inner Tracker (IT) stations downstream of the magnet. We report on final elements of the production, the installation and commissioning process in the experiment. Focusing on electronic and hardware issues we describe the lessons learned and the pitfalls encountered. First experience of detector operation is presented.
