The prospects for measuring the branching fraction of at the International Linear Collider (ILC) have been evaluated based on a full detector simulation of the International Large Detector (ILD) concept, considering centre-of-mass energies () of 250 GeV and 500 GeV with two different beam polarisation configurations of and . For both cases, the two final states and have been analyzed. For integrated luminosities of 2 at GeV and 4 at GeV, the combined precision on the branching fraction of is estimated to be 17%. The impact of the transverse momentum resolution for this analysis is also studied.
