Description

The CMS silicon tracker is the largest silicon detector ever built. It consists of a hybrid pixel detector with 66 million channels and a 200 m2 silicon strip detector with 10 million read out channels. The presentation describes the operation of this detector during data taking years before the current LHC shutdown, both during proton-proton as well as heavy ion collisions. Results on the operational performance are presented including alignment, calibration, S/N, timing, etc.
