Colliders for the Future
We are collaborators on two potential future colliders, the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) and the Future Circular Collider (FCC).
CLIC: Compact Linear Collider
CLIC is a proposed high-energy linear electron-positron collider, with collision energies of up to 3 TeV. Edinburgh is a member of CLICdp (CLIC detector & physics) collaboration that are developing a detector and studying the physics potential for CLIC. Our current focus is studying the prospects for Higgs boson and top quark physics at CLIC

FCC: Future Circular Collider
FCCis a design study for a 80 - 100 km circular collider, most likely based at CERN, with options for electron-positron, proton-proton and electron-proton collisions. In proton-proton mode a centre of mass energy of 100 TeV will be achieved. This will allow precision measurements of the particles of the Standard Model such as the Higgs Boson and the extend the search for new particles to a significantly higher energy scale.
