The particle physics community is currently studying collider projects for the post-LHC era. Among those, muon colliders are particularly interesting due to their ability to reach multi-TeV energies in the environment typical for lepton colliders where backgrounds due to other physics processes are significantly lower than at a hadron collider experiment. However, as muons are unstable particles such a machine will be accompanied with technological challenges for a collider experiment: an unprecedented amount of secondary and tertiary decay products will enter the detector volume. The detector design, choice of technology, and reconstruction algorithms are therefore heavily influenced by the ‘beam-induced background’ (BIB). In this talk we describe the initial detector concept, present full simulation studies of data reconstruction performance and physics projections at 1.5 and 3 TeV, and outline next steps in the development of a multi-purpose detector for a muon collider with center-of-mass energies up to 10 TeV.
