CERN - European Organization for Nuclear Research - Linear Collider Physics & Detectors Group



The CLIC Conceptual Design Report (CDR) comprises three reports. The reports "Physics and Detectors at CLIC" and "A multi-TeV Linear Collider based on CLIC Technology" (link) provide detailed accounts of the conceptual design and the feasibility of the CLIC multi-TeV linear collider and its physics potential, with a focus on the most difficult option, 3 TeV centre-of-mass energy.

A third volume, "The CLIC programme: towards a staged e+e- collider exploring the terascale" (link), was recently published. It provides a summary of the two technical volumes, as well as giving information on a staged construction and operation of CLIC. This volume also discusses issues related to the schedule and cost of CLIC.
