The performance of ATLAS SemiConductor Tracker (SCT) in Run-2 at Large
Hadron Collider (LHC) has been reviewed during the current long shutdown.
The LHC successfully completed its Run-2 operation (2015-2018) with a total
integrated delivered luminosity of 156 fb−1 at the centre-of-mass pp collision
energy of 13 TeV. The LHC high performance provide us a good opportunity for
physics analysis. It came with high instantaneous luminosity and pileup
conditions that were far in excess of what the SCT was originally designed to
meet. The first significant effects of radiation damage in the SCT were also
observed during Run-2. This talk will summarise the operational experience and
performance of the SCT during Run-2, with a focus on the impact and
mitigation of radiation damage effects.
