0. El detector ILD

0.f. Letter of Intend,LOI

En este documento se explica la filosofis del nuevo detector ILD, surguido de la union de dos grandes grupos de trabajo, provenientes de los antiguos detectores LDC y el GLD.

The signatories of this Letter of Intent are an international group of physicists with strong participation from Asia, Europe and the Americas. With this letter of intent the undersigned express their intention to develop further the ILD concept to a point where a concrete proposal can be made. However, at this stage, this does not represent a firm commitment either in terms of manpower or resources.

This document is organised as follows:

  • Chapter 2: DETECTOR OPTIMISATION describes the studies used to optimise and define the main parameters of the ILD concept. These studies are:
    • i) the performance of particle flow calorimetry in terms of jet energy resolution;
    • ii) the tracking performance for momentum resolution and impact parameter resolution;
    • iii) the beam-related backgrounds and the impact of the choice of B;
    • iv) the efficiency and purity of heavy flavour tagging;
    • v) and the impact on physics performance in three benchmark processes.
The optimisation of the ILD concept was performed in parallel using the software tools developed by the GLD and the LDC groups, JSF and Mokka and Marlin recpectively.
  • Chapter 3: PHYSICS PERFORMANCE presents the performance of the ILD concept in terms of the low level detector response, such as momentum resolution, jet energy resolution, and flavour-tagging performance. It also describes a number of physics studies which demonstrate that the ILC concept is well optimised for physics at the ILC operating in the centre-of-mass energy range 200 GeV? to 1TeV;
  • Chapter 4 describes the ILD subdetector systems in the context of the ongoing R&D programme;
  • Chapter 5 describes de Data Acquisition and Computing.
  • Chapter 6: DETECTOR INTEGRATION describes the interface between ILD and the ILC;
  • Chapter 7 discusses the current understanding of the likely cost of ILD;
  • Chapters 8 and 9 describe the structure of the ILD group and the necessary R&D needed to realise this project.

El grupo tambien ha participada en la redaccion de la Letter of Intend de otro de los detectores del proyecto ILC, el llamado detector SiD?, tambien realizado en marzo del 2009, donde tambien aparecemos como firmantes algunos miembros del dpto:



La idea es asegurar la participacion del Grupo Experimental de Altas Energias, (GAES http://www.usc.es/gaes/ ? ),del Instituto Gallego de Altas Energias (IGFAE: http://igfae.usc.es/ ) en la construccion final del experimento dentro de unos 10 aņos, cuando se decida cuales de los posibles proyectos de detectores (SiD?, ILD o el cuarto concepto) seran finalmente los que se lleven a cabo.
