High granular calorimetry for the future international linear collider

The International Linear Collider (ILC) is a concept for a linear electron-positron accelerator with a center-of-mass energy of up to 1 TeV. Its main purpose is the precise measurements of particles discovered by the LHC such as the Higgs boson. The International Large Detector (ILD) is one the proposed detector concepts, specifically designed for the usage of Particle Flow Algorithms that require highly granular calorimeters. Within the CALICE collaboration, several prototypes of such devices, exploring different technologies, have been developed and tested. This seminar will describe the results of the data taken during beam tests at CERN and investigate several physics benchmarks with a special focus on the Higgs physics to asses the performances of the full ILD configuration.
