CERN Accelerating science

Linear Collider Accelerator and Detector

A possible future collider such as the ILC, CLIC or FCC-ee would enable a unique top physics program far beyond the capabilities of the HL-LHC.

A highlight from the CLIC Week 2017

This March saw the annual workshop of the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) at CERN, gathering 220 collaborators from over 26 countries to discuss the latest status of the CLIC accelerator and detector studies.

The CLIC workshop 2016 covered Accelerator as well as the Detector and Physics studies, discussing CLIC's present status and programme for the coming years.

The PH Linear Collider Detector group (PH-LCD) was the first user of the new AIDA beam telescope in August, taking data with silicon pixel-detector prototypes under development for a future vertex detector.

Independent of the choice of CERN's next high energy collider, the challenges of designing an FCC detector mirror some of those already under consideration for CLIC.

SPS shutdown sends test beam research to DESY
