The CLIC Study of a Multi-TeV Linear Collider

Jean-Pierre Delahaye (CERN)
DESY Auditorium, 17:00 h

The CLIC study explores technological developments to extend electron/positron linear colliders into the Multi-TeV colliding beam energy range at reasonable cost and power consumption. For the sake of efficiency, it is based on a novel scheme of Two Beam Acceleration. A site independent conceptual design report (CDR) of an electron-positron Compact LInear Collider (CLIC) with a 3 TeV center-of-mass collision energy is presently being prepared including results of 25 years of R&D to address the feasibility of its novel and promising technology, especially in an ambitious Test Facility, CTF3. The present status and major results of the R&D performed by a multi-lateral CLIC/CTF3 collaboration strong of 38 volunteer institutes from 19 countries as well as the plans towards a Technical Design for a possible facility complementary to the LHC in the future will be presented.
