Detectors for the ILC (Part 2)
The international linear collider (ILC) will be the next major collider project for high energy physics. In the initial stages, the ILC will collide electrons and positrons at centre of mass energies between 200 and 500 GeV. Coupled with measurements from the LHC at CERN, the ILC will allow us to investigate physics at the electroweak scale with unprecedented accuracy. In order to fully exploit the physics reach of the ILC, new, innovative detector technologies need to be explored and developed.
After a brief introduction to the ILC machine and physics programme, I will describe the four detector concepts currently proposed for the ILC collision regions. I will go on to discuss the current R&D programmes for the sub-detectors technologies and how these effect the overall physics potential of the ILC.
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. .
