Description

Depleted Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (CMOS) sensors are emerging as one of the
main candidate technologies for future tracking detectors in high luminosity colliders. Their capability
of integrating the sensing diode into the CMOS wafer hosting the front-end electronics allows for
reduced noise and higher signal sensitivity, due to the direct collection of the sensor signal by the
readout electronics. They are suitable for high radiation environments due to the possibility of applying
high depletion voltage and the availability of relatively high resistivity substrates. The use of a CMOS
commercial fabrication process leads to their cost reduction and allows faster construction of large area
detectors. In this seminar, I will show a general perspective of the state of the art of CMOS detectors
for High Energy Physics experiments. I will also summarize the main developments carried out with
regard to these devices in the framework of the CERN RD50 collaboration.
