Overview of the CLIC project and physics potential

  • Speaker: André Sailer (CERN)
  • Status: Invited talk
  • Abstract: The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is a proposed high-luminosity linear electron-positron collider at the energy frontier. For optimal physics potential, CLIC is foreseen to be built and operated in a staged approach, with three centre-of-mass energy stages; ranging from a few hundred GeV up to 3 TeV. The initial energy stage is planned to operate just above the top-quark pair production threshold around 380 GeV, with focus on precision measurements of the Higgs-boson and the top-quark properties. Reaching precisions beyond the HL-LHC reach, this programme further provides very competitive constraints on models describing physics beyond the Standard Model. The subsequent energy stages of CLIC will focus on measurements of rare Higgs-boson processes, as well as direct and indirect searches for New Physics, and precision measurements of possible new particles. This talk will give a short introduction to the foreseen CLIC accelerator and detector and summarise and discuss analysis results from the Higgs, top-quark, and BSM physics programme.
