The proposed Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) will provide
electron-positron collisions with centre-of-mass energy operation in
three stages from a few hundred GeV up to 3 TeV. This offers a rich
precision physics program combined with high sensitivity to a wide range
of possible new phenomena. The precision required for such measurements
and the specific conditions imposed by the beam bunch sizes and time
structure put strict requirements on the detector design and technology
development. This includes ultra-low mass vertexing and tracking systems
with small cells, highly granular imaging calorimeters, and a precise
hit-timing resolution for all subsystems. A new optimised detector model
matching these requirements has been integrated in the CLIC simulation
framework. A variety of detector optimisation studies have been carried
out to establish the overall detector performance and to assess the
impact of different technology options. In parallel, ambitious R&D
programs, e.g. for silicon tracking detectors, are pursued, addressing
the challenging detector requirements with innovative new technologies.
This contribution reviews the optimisation studies performed for
critical parameters of the CLIC detector, presents the detector
performance achieved in full-detector simulations and gives an overview
of the ongoing hardware R&D.
