Early Thoughts on the CEPC Detector

Abstract: The Circular Electron Positron Collider (CEPC) has been proposed by the Chinese high energy physics community. It would allow precision measurements of the properties of the discovered Higgs boson. To fully exploit the physics potential of the machine, the embedded detector needs to provide sufficient precision that is similar to the proposed ILC detectors but it will have to deal with rather different beam conditions. In this talk, I will explain the requirements and challenges for the CEPC detector, and discuss the possible detector technologies. I will also report briefly the detector R&D status.
Speaker: Hongbo Zhu - Institute of High Energy Physics - Beijing
Speaker Bio: Dr. Hongbo Zhu obtained his Bachelorís degree in nuclear engineering and nuclear technology in 2004 at Tsinghua University in China, and PhD in particle Physics at University of Sheffield in UK. He worked as a postdoc from 2009-2013 at DESY in Germany. In 2013, he joined the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP) Beijing and received the 1000 Young Talents fellowship from the Chinese government in 2015. He has been working at the ATLAS experiment since 2005. He contributed to the early development of the back-ward tracking and photon conversion reconstruction algorithms for the offline event reconstruction during his PhD. He was involved in the precision measurements of the top quark pair production and the top mass, and stepped into the silicon detector development for the ATLAS Phase-II at the early stage. After joining IHEP, he started to coordinate the IHEPís efforts on the ATLAS Phase-II upgrade project and has been actively involved in the initial R&D of the pixel sensor for the proposed Circular Electron Positron Collider (CEPC) project.
