The luminosity upgrade of the large hadron collider (SLHC) at CERN will require the innermost layers of the vertex detectors to achieve excellent performances up to fluences of about 10(16) hadrons cm(-2). New solid state detectors are currently being developed by the CERN RD50 collaboration. In this paper recent results on magnetic Czochralski, epitaxial, and oxygen-enriched silicon will be presented. The development of novel 3D and semi-3D devices will also be discussed. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
