Physics at Future Colliders

Fermilab CMS group is working on exploration of several future collider facilities options, physics opportunities at those facilities and detector requirements, in collaboration with the global particle physics community. The group’s particular interests are in post-LHC proton-proton colliders from roughly twice the collision energy of the LHC (25 TeV) to 100 TeV and beyond. In view of the significant capabilities of lepton colliders as Higgs factories for precision measurements of the Higgs boson, the group is also highly interested in lepton colliders as Higgs factories. The electron-positron colliders (ILC, FCC-ee) and a muon collider are being studied globally. Muon colliders offer an efficient path to multi-TeV lepton colliders and enable studies of high mass resonances if they exist.

At the present time, these studies are being performed in the context of the U.S. Particle Physics Community Study (Snowmass 2021) organized by the APS Division of Particle and Fields.

Co-conveners of the Fermilab Energy Frontier Group: P. Bhat, A. Canepa, P. Fox, S. Jindariani, S. Nagaitsev

The Fermilab Particle Physics Division hosts a group focused on future colliders, with CMS physicists and others from across the laboratory playing key roles
