Abstract

The design and construction of the silicon strip microvertex detector (SMD) of the L3 experiment at LEP are described. We present the sensors, readout electronics, data acquisition system, mechanical assembly and support, displacement monitoring systems and radiation monitoring system of the recently installed double-sided, double-layered SMD. This detector utilizes novel and sophisticated techniques for its readout.
