Abstract: Weclarifybasicconceptsconcerningtheresponseofsilicondetectorstoionizingradiation,focusingon
light ionswithenergiesrangingfromafewhundredkeVtoafewMeV.Throughreanalysisofexisting
experimentaldata,wequantifythedifferenceintheresponseofsilicondetectorsto α particles and 16O
ions, andwedeterminethecorrectionthatmustbemadebeforeanenergycalibrationobtainedwith α
particles canbeappliedtothemeasurementof 16O ions.Finally,weshowthatanapparentdisagreement
among threerecentmeasurementsofthedecayspectrumof 8B canbeexplainedbyafailuretocorrectly
take intoaccountthedifferentresponseofsilicondetectorsto α particles and 16O ions.
