Abstract

In this paper, we report on the performance of heavily irradiated silicon detectors operated at cryogenic temperatures. The results discussed here show that cryogenic operation indeed represents a reliable method to increase the radiation tolerance of standard silicon detectors by more than one order of magnitude. In particular, a 400 mum thick "double- p" silicon detector irradiated up to 1 x 10(15) n/cm(2) delivers a mip signal of about 27 000 electrons when operated at 130 K and 500 V bias. The position resolution of an irradiated microstrip detector, and "in situ" irradiation of a pad detector during operation in the cold are also discussed.
