Abstract
The ALICE detector at LHC is a complex apparatus which makes use, in the in ternal-tracking-system part, of silicon-strip detectors. These sensors will be exposed to particle irradiation which might harm their performances as well as those of their readout electronics. In the framework of R&D of thes e detectors and of their associated electronics, a module, associating a st rip detector and ALICE 128C readout chips, has been irradiated with 20 MeV protons beyond the dose expected to be deposited over the whole ALICE exper iment ( similar to 10 krad within about 10 years of running). Results relat ive to the static and dynamic characteristics of this module are presented and discussed. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
