Abstract
The Backward Silicon Tracker (BST) of the H1 Experiment at HERA measures th e polar angle of electron tracks with a precision of about 0.2 mrad. The BS T recorded its first high-luminosity data in 1997 and underwent significant upgradation in 1998. Ln this paper, the layout, operation and performance of the BST are described and some physics results are discussed. The BST ha s been operating reliably. Thus, it is foreseen for the high-luminosity pha se of HERA to base an additional silicon tracker in the forward region of H 1 on the technology and the experience gained with the operation of the BST .
