      Physics and detectors at a future TeV-scale linear e+e- collider based on CLIC technology

      Dr. Lucie Linssen, European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN), Geneva

CLIC is a future e+e- linear collider under development. It is based on a novel two beam accelerating scheme and has the capability to operate at centre-of-mass energies ranging from a few hundred GeV to 3 TeV. In the seminar a short overview will be given of the CLIC accelerator technology, the status of the development and the operating possibilities it can offer. The CLIC physics potential includes precision Higgs measurements and searches for new physics phenomena; it is largely complementary to LHC. The physics aims, together with the experimental conditions at CLIC, set challenging requirements for the detectors. The CLIC experiment concepts under study and their detector technologies will be presented. The precision physics capabilities of the detector concepts are confirmed on the basis of detailed physics benchmark studies. Finally, the roadmap for the CLIC developments in the coming years will be highlighted.
