The main principles of particle detectors will be reviewed together with some key parameters that determine their design and specifications, namely vertex measurement, particle momentum and energy measurement as well as particle identification. Present LHC detectors are used for illustration of these topics. The challenges for future particle detectors are then discussed by using the plans for HL-LHC and ILC detectors as examples.
