Within the framework of the world-wide collaboration on Linear Colliders, the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) study explores the technical feasibility of beam acceleration by travelling wave structures at room temperature and high frequency (30 GHz) powered from a drive beam, the so-called Two Beam Acceleration scheme. CLIC covers a center-of-mass energy range for electron-positron collisions of 0.5 to 5 TeV.
The CLIC study team is based in AB Department .
The status, at the beginning of 2003, of the four Linear Collider (LC) studies (CLIC included), carried out around the world, were summarized in a presentation given on 10 July, 2003. The technical characteristics of these design studies (CLIC included), as well as the view of the International LC Technical Review Committee on the R&D issues yet to be covered, were presented.
The design study has been optimised for a nominal center-of-mass energy of 3 TeV (3 TeV CLIC), the description of which follows, together with access to the corresponding report files. In addition, the chapters of the ILC-TRC (ICFA-Linear Collider Technical Review Committee) report describing the 500 GeV CLIC, the CLIC path to higher energies, and the CLIC test facility and other R&D programs are also made available below.
