Every particle detector goes through the same simple process: first, the particle interacts with the detector, dissipating a fraction of its energy inside the detecting medium, and then the signal produced by this interaction is read out and recorded. The type and energy of the incoming particles, as well as the detecting material, influence this interaction process.

Understanding and predicting the outcomes of particle-matter interactions is critical for designing and optimizing particle detector performance. The information contained in this book will provide the reader with a practical guide to understanding and interpreting this process, with special emphasis on the silicon case. Furthermore, it introduces the reader to an innovative methodology developed by the author for measuring the energy loss by minimum ionizing particles in thin silicon layers using commercial CMOS pixel detectors.

This book is the result of several years of research on interaction processes and experimental tests with innovative silicon detectors carried out by the author at the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) and at European Council for Nuclear Research (CERN).
