In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have an API key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
Additionally to having an API key associated with your account, exporting private event information requires the usage of a persistent signature. This enables API URLs which do not expire after a few minutes so while the setting is active, anyone in possession of the link provided can access the information. Due to this, it is extremely important that you keep these links private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately create a new key pair on the 'My Profile' page under the 'HTTP API' and update the iCalendar links afterwards.

The first demonstration of a semiconductor particle detector in 1944 was followed by intense efforts, exploiting the rapidly evolving materials purification technologies. About 10 years later the first practical silicon devices were used for energy measurement of ionizing nuclear particles. From then on, during 60 years a succession of innovations in materials, geometry, processing technology, system architecture and signal readout electronics has led to widespread use of silicon detectors in experiments, materials analysis and medical imaging. These devices obviously deal with single particles and light quanta, providing an extreme measurement sensitivity, in comparison with classical chemical methods. While successful in nuclear physics, there was little use of silicon detectors in particle physics, with bubble chambers and later the wire chambers stealing the show. Belatedly, thanks to innovations at CERN and by other teams in elementary particle physics worldwide, the segmented silicon pixel and micro-strip detectors now made their comeback in the LHC, allowing 40 million frames per second to be recorded, 7 orders of magnitude more than in the ~1975 bubble chambers. The SiO2-based micro- and nano-electronics technology has been the basis for much of our developments. In return, it is worth noting that nano-electronics would not exist without the precision accelerators used for implantations of various species of ions into the silicon crystal. Finally, development opportunities are discussed for future physics applications.
