Abstract: 

The International Linear Collider (ILC) is a concept for a linear electron-positron accelerator with a center-of-mass energy of up to 1 TeV. Its main purpose is the precise measurements of particles discovered by the LHC such as the recently discovered Higgs boson. The International Large Detector (ILD) is one of its detector concepts, specifically designed for the usage of Particle Flow Algorithms which requires highly granular calorimeters. Within the CALICE collaboration, several prototypes of such devices, exploring different technologies, have been developed and tested. This seminar will describe the analysis results of the data taken during beam tests at CERN. In a second part, the seminar will be devoted to the investigation of several physics benchmarks analyses with a special focus on the Higgs physics thus to asses the performances of the full ILD configuration.
