Detector Production and Commissioning
During the last five years many institutes worldwide produced and tested the individual components for the silicon strip detector. Starting from the main ingredients – sensors, front-end electronics, module frames etc. – the objects being built and under test became more and more complex. Finally after careful shipment of all pre-assembled and tested subdetectors the full silicon strip tracker was assembled and commissioned at the tracker test facility TIF at CERN. In December 2007 the entire object was installed inside CMS in its final position. Final cabling and testing was carried out and finished in spring 2008.
