The name of the group is historically related to the DESY Group Names consisting of three letters. 'Forschung mit Leptoncollidern' translates into 'Research with Lepton Colliders'. The Group's concerns, therefore, are research and Development of detector components as well as beam line setup considerations and accelerator core job characteristics.
FLC, therefore, currently plays a highly active role in the world-wide efforts towards the next-generation collider: The International Linear Collider, ILC, using Electron-Positron lepton beams for the investigation of the High Energy Physics borders the LHC at CERN in Genf is about to access for the first time. The window, that LHC in Genf will open throughout the next couple of years will then be expanded and precision comes into play, since the proposed 'New Age Machine', the ILC, wil be able to test our view of the world and the findings from Genf with higher precision than ever.
