# First performance results for the LHCb Silicon Tracker

Anderson, J (2011). First performance results for the LHCb Silicon Tracker. Nuclear Physics B - Proceedings Supplements, 215(1):122-124.

## Abstract

The LHCb detector is a single arm forward spectrometer designed to study the decays of B-mesons in proton-proton collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The LHCb Silicon Tracker (ST) is a silicon micro-strip detector with a sensitive area of 12 m2 and a total of 272 thousand readout channels. The detector, which was fully installed by early summer 2008, currently has more than 99% of channels fully functioning. We present the results of calibration and performance studies of the ST using data collected by the experiment during LHC proton-proton collisions in late 2009 and spring 2010.
