High-precision vertexing: from concept to reality

by Ladislav Andricek

They're all individuals: detectors for particle physics all look very different. However, some of the technologies they (plan to) use can be the same, as this example from Belle II hows: it uses a component originally designed for an ILC detector. An example of technology transfer from the future...

Next generation records #mylinearcollider videos

At the 9th International Accelerator School for Linear Collider, many young scientists joined the #mylinearcollider campaign – video messages from all over the world from people who wish to participate in the project. We have prepared a new playlist of messages from young scientists, #nextgeneration, on YouTube. Have a a look at what the next generation has to say!
