The requirements at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN have pushed the present day silicon tracking detectors to the very edge of the current technology. Future very high luminosity colliders or a possible upgrade scenario of the LHC to a luminosity of 1035 cm-2s-1 will require semiconductor detectors with substantially improved properties. Considering the expected total fluences of fast hadrons above 1016 cm-2 and a possible reduced bunch-crossing interval, the detector must be ultra radiation hard, provide a fast and efficient charge collection and be as thin as possible.

The objective of the CERN RD50 Collaboration is the development of radiation hard semiconductor detectors for very high luminosity colliders, particularly to face the requirements introduced above. The research activity of RD50 has been organised in two major lines, Material Engineering and Device Engineering.
