Now open: the Planning Office for the International Linear Collider to realise the ILC

| 6 February 2014 I am pleased to be in charge to provide the Director’s Corner in timely manner and coinciding with a public announcement from KEK. KEK has set up a Planning Office for the International Linear Collider, headed by Atsuto Suzuki, Director General of KEK. It may serves a precursor for an international planning organisation for the ILC, in the preparation phase starting after the Technical Design Phase completed.

Advances in SCRF cavity performance in the Technical Design Phase

| 29 March 2012 As a result of the continued improvement of cavity processing and a better understanding of the gradient limit, researchers are closely approaching their design goals, with the hope of reaching them by the end of 2012. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , , ,

Global Design Effort optimises industralisation models

| 26 May 2011 As part of Technical Design Phase 2, the Global Design Effort has been working towards more realistic and cost-effective industrialisation models for the production of superconducting radiofrequency cavities and cryomodules, as these are primary cost drivers in the ILC construction estimate. To that end, they have been organising a series of visit to cavity and material manufacturers and workshops. The next one is in July 2011 in Chicago, US.

Global effort for high-gradient ILC SCRF cavities

| 30 July 2009 I would like to thank Barry Barish (...) for the opportunity to write his column and expand on the efforts for an area of the Main Linac and Superconducting Radiofrequency (ML-SCRF) technology and the tasks ahead of us. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

Progress in the SCRF technical area

| 30 October 2008 As one of Project Managers for the ILC I was been given the current task of overseeing superconducting radiofrequency technology (SCRF) in August 2007, and it may be a good time to see how our SCRF technical area could make some progress with global cooperation.

A plug-compatible approach toward a truly efficient international collaboration

| 28 February 2008 It has been eight months since I joined the ILC team as a project manager. I have been learning a lot and am impressed with research and development works achieved and with the knowledge and expertise each scientist or engineer has. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , ,
