Abstract
The new silicon tracker layout (V4) is presented. The system aspects of the construction are discussed together with the expected tracking performance . Because of the high radiation environment in which the detectors will ope rate, particular care has been devoted to the study of the characteristics of heavily irradiated detectors. This includes studies on performance (charge collection, cluster size, reso lution, efficiency) as a function of the bias voltage, integrated fluence, incidence angle and temperature.
