Physics and detectors at the CLIC linear e+e- collider
CLIC is a future e+e- linear collider under development. It is based on a novel two beam accelerating scheme, with the capability of operating at centre-of-mass energies ranging from a few hundred GeV to 3 TeV. The Physics and Detector volume of the CLIC conceptual design report was recently published. In the seminar a short overview will be given of the CLIC physics potential, with emphasis on complementarity to LHC. Experimental conditions at a 3 TeV CLIC machine will be described, together with the resulting requirements for the detectors. The CLIC experiment concepts will be presented. These concepts are derived from the ILD and SiD concepts, originally designed for the 500 GeV International Linear Collider. Methodology for event reconstruction under CLIC background conditions will be described together with a few physics benchmarking examples. Finally, the main issues for the future R&D programme will be highlighted.
