Abstract: 

The ATLAS Inner Tracker strip detector collaboration will be producing more than 20,000 silicon strip detector modules in anticipation of the high luminosity upgrade for the LHC (HL-LHC). The HL-LHC will achieve approximately 200 proton-proton collisions per 25ns with the center of mass energy 14TeV at the center of the ATLAS detector with the goal of improving the precision of physics measurements of known interactions and of potentially discovering unknown physics processes. To achieve this, the ATLAS collaboration aims to upgrade the ATLAS Inner Detector (ID) with the new all silicon radiation hard Inner Tracker (ITk) based on new technology developed since the installation of the ATLAS detector.

This M.Sc. thesis contains the details of the development and evaluation of the prototype silicon strip sensors for the ATLAS ITk. In addition, this thesis presents the development of the assembly technique for the silicon strip detector modules for the ATLAS ITk.
