Electron-positron collisions at the Compact Linear Collider

An electron-positron collider is widely considered to be the next large international project in high-energy particle physics. An overview of proposed linear and circular collider options is given. The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is a mature option for a future electron-positron collider operating at centre-of-mass energies up to 3 TeV. Highlights from the R&D programs for the CLIC accelerator and detector are shown. The CLIC physics potential is best exploited in a staged construction and operation scenario. The first stage at 380 GeV is optimised for precision measurements of the Higgs boson and top quark. The higher energy stages, currently assumed to be at 1.5 and 3 TeV, significantly enhance the sensitivity to many new physics scenarios.
