Performance of the LHCb Silicon Tracker in p-p Collisions at the LHC

The Large Hadron Collider beauty experiment (LHCb) is a single-arm forward spectrometer dedicated to the study of B-meson decays in p - p collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The LHCb detector has excellent tracking and particle identification capabilities. The LHCb Silicon Tracker (ST) is composed of two silicon micro-strip detectors with long readout strips. The performance of these two detectors with the first high energy p - p collisions are presented here. A detailed study of the detectors intrinsic resolution and efficiency has been performed along with precise time alignment using collision data. The latest Silicon Tracker performance results and comparison to expectations are presented.
