Higgsstrahlung and double Higgs production at high-energy CLIC operation

  • Speaker: Matthias Weber
  • Track: Higgs Physics
  • Status: accepted for an oral presentation
  • Abstract: The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is a mature option for a future electron-positron collider operating at centre-of-mass energies of up to 3 TeV. CLIC would be built and operated in a stagedapproach with three centre-of-mass energy stages currently assumed to be 380 GeV, 1.5 TeV, and 3 TeV. This presentation focusses on unique opportunities at the multi-TeV stages in the area of Higgs physics. Two physics studies based on full detector simulations will be discussed: Higgsstrahlung (e+e- -> ZH) and the extraction of the Higgs self-coupling from double Higgs production. The first is particularly interesting as contributions from BSM effects to the Higgsstrahlung process grow with energy. Substructure information can be used to identify fully hadronic ZH events at 3 TeV to maximise the statistical precision. B-tagging in boosted Higgs boson decays was studied for the first time for CLIC. New projections for the ZH event rate and angular distributions will be shown. The Higgs self-coupling is of particular interest: for determining the shape of the Higgs potential, and due to its sensitivity to a variety of BSM physics scenarios. At the higher-energy stages CLIC will produce Higgs boson pairs both via double Higgsstrahlung and via vector-boson fusion. Measurements of these processes lead to a determination of the Higgs self-coupling with a precision around 10%.

The CLIC potential for new physics

  • Speaker: Philipp Roloff
  • Track: Beyond the Standard Model
  • Status: accepted for an oral presentation
  • Abstract: The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is a mature option for a future electron-positron collider operating at centre-of-mass energies of up to 3 TeV. CLIC would be built and operated in a staged approach with three centre-of-mass energy stages currently assumed to be 380 GeV, 1.5 TeV, and 3 TeV. A selection of results from recent studies will be presented showing that CLIC has excellent sensitivity to many BSM physics scenarios. New particles can be discovered in a model-independent way almost up to the kinematic limit. Compared with hadron colliders, the low background conditions at CLIC provide extended discovery potential, in particular for the production through electroweak and/or Higgs boson interactions. This includes long-lived states, for example through the reconstruction of disappearing tracks. In addition to studying new particles directly, BSM models can be probed up to scales far beyond the centre-of-mass energy of the collider via precision measurements of Standard Model processes. Beam polarisation allows further constraints on the underlying theory in many cases.

Silicon Vertex and Tracking Detector R&D for CLIC

  • Speaker: Katharina Dort
  • Track: Detectors for Future Facilities (incl. HL-LHC), R&D, Novel Techniques
  • Status: accepted for an oral presentation
  • Abstract: The physics aims at the proposed future CLIC high-energy linear e+e- collider pose challenging demands on the performance of the detector system. In particular, the vertex and tracking detectors have to combine a spatial resolution of a few micrometres and a low material budget with a few nanoseconds time-stamping accuracy. For the vertex detector, fine pitch sensors, dedicated 65nm readout ASICs, fine-pitch bonding techniques using solder bumps or anisotropic conductive films as well as monolithic devices based on Silicon-On-Insulator technology are explored. Fully monolithic CMOS sensors with large (High-Voltage CMOS) and small (High-Resistivity CMOS) collection electrodes are under investigation for the large surface CLIC tracker. This contribution gives an overview of the CLIC vertex and tracking detector R&D, focussing on recent results from test-beam campaigns and simulation-based sensor optimisation studies.
