What does the P5 report mean for the International Linear Collider?

by Joykrit Mitra

The 2014 P5 report makes provisions for significant US participation in the ILC construction, should the project move forward. The particle physics community recognises the imperative for US participation in the project to maintain its leadership position in high-energy physics.

Linear Collider School switches lakes

by Brian Foster

The Linear Collider school, a week of intense lectures and discussions on all things linear, has just taken place at lake Chiemsee in Germany, switching from its former venue in the UK’s Lake District to Bavaria. Brian Foster, European Director in the Linear Collider Collaboration, was one of the lecturers and reports about exotic PhDs and linear collider news from a monastic setting.

    SPR ltd is working on a superconducting demo which should be 100 times more powerful than the first version and provide 30 newtons of force instead of 315 milli-newtons. China is also building a large S-band thruster.

    Superconducting radiofrequency (SCRF) cavities are also the main technology for a new international linear collider.
