Title: The Assembly of the Silicon Tracker of the Beam Test Engineering Model of the GLAST Large Area Telescope

Abstract

The silicon tracker for the engineering model of the GLAST Large Area Telescope(LAT) to date represents the largest surface of silicon microstrip detectors assembled in a tracker (2.7 m{sup 2}). It demonstrates the feasibility of employing this technology for satellite based experiments, in which large effective areas and high reliability are required. This note gives an overview of the assembly of this silicon tracker and discusses in detail studies performed to track quality assurance: leakage current, mechanical alignment and production yields.
