Semiconductor sensors patterned at the micron scale combined with custom-designed integrated circuits have revolutionized semiconductor radiation detector systems. Designs covering many square meters with millions of signal channels are now commonplace in high-energy physics and the technology is finding its way into many other fields, ranging from astrophysics to experiments at synchrotron light sources and medical imaging. This book is the first to present a comprehensive discussion of the many facets of highly integrated semiconductor detector systems, covering sensors, signal processing, transistors and circuits, low-noise electronics, and radiation effects. The diversity of design approaches is illustrated in a chapter describing systems in high-energy physics, astronomy, and astrophysics. Finally a chapter "Why things don't work" discusses common pitfalls. Profusely illustrated, this book provides a unique reference in a key area of modern science.

The beauty of this book is that it takes a system approach, which combines the understanding of the physics of semiconductor detectors with the necessary electronics. I believe this book will be the standard reference work on the subject. [...] Spieler is well known as a world expert in this field. As well as being very knowledgeable, he takes great pleasure in communicating his understanding. ( Tony Weidberg, University of Oxford)
... a great topic, ... a marvellous teacher. ( Chris Damerell, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory)
... nice and thorough, ... a great reference book. ( Joseph Incandela, University of California at Santa Barbara)
... could become a classic. ( Ken Smith, University of Glasgow)
