This WG coordinates the study of suitable technologies for a CLIC vertex detector. Taking into account the CLIC physics requirements, the WG studies ways to achieve these requirements through hardware implementation. It aims at identifying solutions that optimally combine high resolution and efficiency for physics observables with optimal background suppression capabilities. Special care will be devoted to sensor technologies, electronics, interconnects, mechanical support, cooling, power delivery and alignment, as well as their integration into an ultra-low mass vertex detector system. This WG studies solutions for the effective integration of the vertex detector in the overall detector concept, both in a functional way (within the tracker system as a whole) and in terms of detector layout and mechanical integration. The WG will make recommendations for CLIC vertex detector R&D.;
Conveners: Dominik Dannheim, Mathieu Benoit
