The LHCb experiment is one of the four big experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and it is designed to perform high-precision measurements of CP violation and search for New Physics. It is constructed as a forward single-arm spectrometer covering the polar angle 15 to 300 mrad. The Silicon Tracker (ST) is a silicon micro-strip detector designed to perform a precise measurement of the particle trajectories produced by the proton-proton interactions. It consists of two sub-detectors, the Tracker Turicensis and the Inner Tracker and covers an area of about 12 m 2 in the highest occupancy region around the beam axis. Results of the detector calibration and performance using data from the LHC p-p collisions collected in the 2010 and 2011 campaigns are reported here: the time and spatial alignment of the detector was performed using data from both campaigns; studies about the intrinsic detector efficiency and resolution are also shown; recent results on the detector performance compared to the expectations will be shown as well.
