Title: The Assembly of the ALICE Silicon Pixel Detector

Abstract

The Silicon Pixel Detector (SPD) is the innermost part of the Inner Tracking System (ITS) of the ALICE experiment at LHC. It consists of 240 detector ladders containing in total about 10 million 50 x 425 {mu}m2 pixel cells that have to be assembled on ten carbon fibre support and cooling sectors. The mounting procedure of the basic SPD modules (Half-Staves) and the assembly of the barrel sectors are presented. Results on the assembly of the first sector are reported.
