I'm looking for a good introductory text on solid state devices for particle detection.
In Gilmore's book:
Chapter 5 is on solid state ionization and it's use in detectors. That was hanging around the lab when I was working in particle physics. I'd give that one a try. It's a bit old these days but the principles are there.
I found this book pretty useful during studies:
It covers a lot of different detector types, and also has some chapters on solid state detectors, from the basics (particles in matter, semiconductors) up to how to build a detector out of it, if I recall correctly.
