Note late start at 1400

The International Linear Collider (ILC) is a proposed future e+e- collider with sqrt{s} <=1 TeV that will measure the properties of the recently discovered Higgs boson with unprecedented precision. The ILC TDR , published in June 2013, describes the unparalleled detector and accelerator performance required.

I will outline the design of the detectors and the associated physics potential of the ILC , concentrating on the calorimeters, which are the most expensive subdetector systems. Particular emphasis will be placed on the Digital Electromagnetic Calorimeter (DECAL) option, which may offer a cost-effective yet high performance alternative, and its impact on the physics potential of the ILC through the measurement of the top-Higgs Yukawa coupling.
