Description

The tracking performance of the ATLAS detector relies critically on its 4-layer
Pixel Detector, that has undergone significant hardware and readout upgrades to
meet the challenges imposed by the higher collision energy, pileup and
luminosity that are being delivered by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), with
record breaking instantaneous luminosities of 2 x 1034 cm-2 s-1 recently
surpassed.
The key status and performance metrics of the ATLAS Pixel Detector are
summarised, and the operational experience and requirements to ensure
optimum data quality and data taking efficiency will be described, with special
emphasis to radiation damage experience.
