Detectors and activities

Two detector study groups were validated by the ILC Research Director following the recommendation of the International Detector Advisory Group (IDAG). The validated detectors are:

  • ILD (International Large Detector)
  • SiD (Silicon Detector)

The Letters of Intent (LOIs) are:


These two detector groups are now preparing Detailed Baseline Designs (DBDs), to be completed by the end of 2012. The contents of these will follow the specifications requested by the ILC Research Director.

The Benchmarks Task Force has specified benchmark reactions for the DBD.
