Silicon detectors are at the heart of many high-energy physics experiments. Intense research and development is taking place to improve the radiation hardness of solid-state detectors for future upgrades of the Large Hadron Collider. New integrated technologies which promise to achieve the excellent resolution needed for precision measurements of the Higgs couplings at the Linear Collider are under development. Prospects for these future projects and the experience gained in the operation and the construction of large silicon detectors will be presented. (C) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
