ILC detector concepts

International Large Detector (ILD)

ILD is a system of particle detectors which is being developed for the ILC. ILD combines excellent tracking and finely-grained calorimetry systems. This gives ILD the ability to reconstruct the energy of individual particles, known as the Particle Flow approach. The precision that can be achieved by ILD is ideal for studies in particle physics which call for accurate measurements of particles and their properties.

Silicon Detector (SiD)

The Silicon Detector Design Study is developing the SiD Detector Concept for the ILC into a detailed, optimized, and fully integrated detector design. The SiD concept incorporates Si/W electromagnetic calorimetry and all-Si tracking in a detector design which attempts to optimize physics performance, constrain costs, and be robust against physics and machine backgrounds.
