Abstract
The BaBar Silicon Vertex Tracker (SVT) is a five layer device, made from do uble-sided silicon strip detectors and read out via a custom time-over-thre shold circuit, the AToM chip. The SVT is an essential part of the physics p rogram of BaBar, and is able to reconstruct B mason decay vertices with a p recision sufficient to measure time-dependent CP violating asymmetries at t he PEP-II asymmetric e(+)e(-) collider. This report will give an overview o f the SVT, with particular focus on the performance of the SVT, which has b een taking colliding beam data since May 1999. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B. V.
