Abstract

The International Large Detector (ILD) at the International Linear Collider (ILC) will require a large volume Time Projection Chamber (TPC) with transverse and longitudinale space-point resolutions of less than 100 microns and 1400 microns, respectively, for all tracks over the full 2.35~m drift region.
The LCTPC collaboration tested various detector modules at the EUDET facility at DESY. Preliminary results of the 2014-2015 test beam campaigns are reported here.
