Abstract: 

CLIC is a high-energy linear electron-positron collider under development. It is based on a novel two-beam acceleration scheme and has the capability to operate at centre-of-mass energies in the range from a few hundred GeV up to 3 TeV. CLIC will enable precision measurements of the Higgs boson and top quark properties. Simultaneously, CLIC provides significant discovery potential for beyond the Standard Model phenomena through direct and indirect measurements.
The physics aims in combination with the experimental conditions at CLIC set challenging requirements for the detectors. The CLIC detector concepts under study and their detector technologies will be discussed. Detailed physics benchmark studies based on full detector simulations are used to illustrate the physics capabilities for various centre-of-mass energies.
