The talk presents the historical development of silicon detectors. Emphasis is put on the different sensor concepts which have been realized, the performances achieved and selected results from experiments in particle and X-ray science which became possible thanks to silicon detectors.

Protein crystallography (PX) is particularly demanding of detector performance and historically it has always been the detector that has been the limiting factor in the majority, if not all, diffraction experiments. Ultimately this is due to the need to obtain data with an excellent signal to noise ratio from samples that are limited in size, inherently weakly diffracting and highly...
