QCD and γγ studies at the FCC-ee

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


The Future Circular Collider (FCC) is a post-LHC project aiming at searches for physics beyond the SM in a new 80-100 km tunnel at CERN. Running in its first phase as a very-high-luminosity electron-positron collider (FCC-ee), it will provide unique possibilities for indirect searches of new phenomena through high-precision tests of the SM. In addition, by collecting tens of ab-1 integrated luminosity in the range of cente-of-mass energies √s =90-350 GeV, the FCC-ee also offers unique physics opportunities for precise measurements of QCD phenomena and of photonphoton collisions through, literally, billions of hadronic final states as well as unprecedented large fluxes of quasireal γ's radiated from the e+e- beams. We succinctly summarize the FCC-ee perspectives for high-precision extractions of the QCD coupling, for studies targeting QCD dynamics, and for SM and BSM studies through γγ collisions.
