Vertex detectors and the linear collider
- Event time: 2:00pm until 3:00pm
- Event date: 8th December 2005

There are now 26 groups round the world investigating 11 different silicon pixel technologies for vertex detectors at the International Linear Collider (ILC). In this talk, we consider the physics incentives for detectors with unprecedented performance. We then review briefly the experience from SLC, and discuss the main challenges to be overcome, in developing a detector of approximately 10^9 pixels able to do the job.
The experimental particle physics seminar series invites speakers from all over Europe to discuss the latest developments at the LHC, accelerator and non-accelerator based neutrino physics, hardware R&D and astroparticle physics. .
