For the 3rd time, the international workshop “Future of Silicon Detector Technologies” focused on technologies and devices for the development and production of radiation detectors. The focus was also on future research priorities in order to be able to manufacture sensors with extremely high radiation hardness with long-term stability and at low cost. In particular, the new experiments at CERN and at the Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung (Society for Heavy Ion Research) in Darmstadt require this radiation hardness in addition to other technical parameters.
Also discussed were new technologies for radiation and image sensors, with which innovative concepts for pixel detectors and other tracking detectors can be realized.
Contributions on defect and design aspects, highly specialized assembly and interconnection technologies and analysis methods covered the complete value chain up to the finished system.
This workshop will be continued on December 03/04, 2018, which will again map the main focus in the field of radiation detectors in the Big Science market.
