Together with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the ILC will be the most
important High Energy Physics project in the next
two decades. If the Higgs bosons exist, the ILC will measure their
properties with accuracy beyond that achieved with the LHC experiments.
The energies provided by ILC will also allow
searches for supersymmetric and other exotic particles, and potentially
lead to discovery of new exciting physics which will shed light on our
understanding of the Universe.
Our group is a member of the CALICE Collaboration to build the
calorimetric system for the
International Linear Collider (ILC), and is part of the ILC Canada group.
We also collaborate with the ILC-TAMU (Texas University) group
in searches for dark-matter.
