A semiconductor sensor is a device that uses a semiconductor, usually silicon or germanium, to detect traversing charged particles or the absorption of photons. Several thin wafers of the semiconductor material are layered together to form these sensors. The important application areas for semiconductor sensors include medical, automotive and aerospace. They have acquired an added importance in recent times due to the emergence of various applications under the umbrella of the “Internet of Things”. This landscape report provides insights into semiconductor sensors and their applications.
