Vertex Detector for the ILC

The International Linear Collider (ILC) is a proposed new electron-positron collider. Together with the Large Hadron Collider at CERN , it would allow physicists to explore energy regions beyond the reach of today's accelerators. At these energies, researchers anticipate significant discoveries that will lead to a radically new understanding of what the universe is made of and how it works. The nature of the ILC's electron-positron collisions would give it the capability to answer compelling questions that discoveries at the LHC will raise, from the identity of dark matter to the existence of extra dimensions.
