In this paper, we describe the key features of the recently completed technical design for the International Linear Collider (ILC), a 200–500 GeV linear electron–positron collider (expandable to 1 TeV) that is based on 1.3 GHz superconducting radio-frequency (SCRF) technology. The machine parameters and detector characteristics have been chosen to complement the Large Hadron Collider physics, including the discovery of the Higgs boson, and to further exploit this new particle physics energy…
