The CMS silicon strip tracker is the largest silicon detector ever built with almost 10 million readout channels and an active area of close to 200 m 2 . This article describes the status of the detector after operation for two and a half years of LHC running. Results from radiation measurements and detector performance, including alignment, are shown. Figure 1: Schematic view in the rz plane of a quarter of the CMS silicon tracker.
