Become a signatory of the Detailed Baseline Design report

24 January 2013

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to sign the Detailed Baseline Design (DBD) report of the ILC detectors, which now exists as a nearly final draft. It summarises the R&D achievements of the ILC Letter-of-Intent period. The contents reflect the many contributions of very many collaborators. The draft is now open to the community under this address.

While this draft is undergoing minor revision following the recent review by the International Detector Advisory Group (IDAG) and the ILC Project Advisory Committee, it is almost in the final form.

A list of signatories will be included in the report. We wish to include those who contributed already in any way or who wish to join the activity in the next stage. We also would like to include names of anyone who supports advancing further the world ILC effort. We invite you, as an interested physicist, to review the draft and to add your name as a signatory.

Please note that signing the DBD does not indicate any formal commitment by you. It does not indicate commitment to the specific detector designs presented, nor exclusive support for ILC over other collider programmes.

Please sign as soon as possible, and definitely before the end of January.

After the final editing, the DBD will serve as one of the volumes of the ILC Technical Design Report (TDR). The combined accelerator/physics/detector signatory list will appear in each volume.

    I would like to sign the Detailed Baseline Design report for the ILC. My group participated in the development of the FLASH and E-XFEL in DESY.
    However, my institute is not listed in the registration form for the signatories. Please consider addring my institution.
    This is:
    Warsaw University of Technology
    Institute of Electronic Systems
    PL-00-665 Warsaw, Poland
    Nowowiejska Street 15-19

    Best regards,
    Professor Ryszard S.Romaniuk

    I would like to sign this TDR since this is the “ILC Letter-of-Intent period” and Fourth was one of the three LoI’s, and also because the IDAG report did mention dual readout as an interesting possibility. I assure you it is still very interesting.

    As mentioned in my talk at KILK, Daegu, we have spent this time building and testing even further dual-readout ideas and feel confident that we will achieve a direct hadronic energy resolution near 1% at high energies. Doing “pfa” in a collider environment will only make it a little bit better. Furthermore, Grancagnolo’s “nearly massless” tracking chamber has been chosen as the tracking chamber of choice in two experiments and, for reasons given in our LoI, I believe it is ideally matched to the ILC.

    The LHC repairs to its superconducting jumpers is just what we need to easily construct the large flux-returning solenoid in the dual solenoid iron-free configuration of Fourth.

    In addition, the combined tracking, dual-readout calorimetry, and the iron-free flux return allow powerful and precise particle identification of all species in the standard model. All of this is in our LoI.

    For these reasons, I think the TDR should reference the Fourth LoI, which can be downloaded from

    Best regards to all,

    Dear Sir,
    I would like to sign the detailed Baseline Design report for the ILC. I am already a part of ILC Collaboration since last few years and definitely we would like to contribute in the next phase along with our group from Banaras Hindu University (India).
