Two Higgs are better than one: Physics at the Super Large Hadron Collider and the implications for the CMS Silicon Tracker Tom Whyntie 1 st year PhD student, High Energy Physics Group Supervisor: Professor Geoff Hall
Outline of the talk Why upgrade? Physics case Higgs self-coupling measurement? Upgrade challenges The CMS silicon tracker Tracker info in the level-1 Trigger? Questions at the end, please
Why increase the luminosity? Statistics Increase data rate precision Physics motivation 1) Improve SM precision 2) Improve “new physics” precision 3) Extend discovery reach 4) Sensitivity to rare processes The question is: Where to look? 
Why increase the luminosity? e.g. Trilinear coupling precision: SLHC ( m H = 150-200GeV ): ~20% SLHC ( m H = 120GeV ): ~50-80% Linear Collider: ~20% (HH) ~10fb 
Why upgrade to the SLHC? LHC discoveries will need probing SLHC - increase precision & reach Present knowledge Current infrastructure Timeframe
Conclusions SLHC needed Describe new physics Improve, extend Many technical challenges 20x more interactions pbx e.g. level 1 triggering R&D needed – now!

How do we upgrade for the SLHC? Handle 20x more interactions Requires extensive R&D e.g. triggering at CMS This needs to start now/continue Focus of my PhD Data from current detector L1 triggering with tracker info.
