Calorimeter under telescope scrutiny

| 3 November 2016 While the CALICE collaboration is still busy analysing the data taken at last year’s big test campaign the team planning the hadronic calorimeter for the ILD detector are already gathering new data. This time they looked at the performance of a few prototype layers in a test beam connected to a beam telescope. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , , , ,

See you, summer students

| 8 September 2016 Summer is drawing to a close, and with it ends another season that often turns lab life on its head and has changed many people’s lives: summer student season. As the students from around the world finish off their projects, present their work to their fellow students and stock up on lab t-shirts, some leave with the certainty that they will return to do particle physics one day.

Gotta catch them all – and fast

| 22 July 2016 Silicon detectors play a crucial role in particle detectors, both present experiment at the LHC and future experiments like the ILC. More than 80 calorimeter and silicon tracking experts attended a dedicated workshop on high-granularity silicon devices, held last month in Hamburg.

Tunnel visions for civil engineers

| 7 July 2016 A delegation from the Japan Society of Civil Engineers including its president took to Europe last month to have a look at civil engineering project for large science facilities. They visited CERN and DESY to look at past and current building projects, which they would use as a reference in case ILC is constructed in Japan. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

German particle physics community gives “strongest support” to ILC

| 26 May 2016 It may feel like only yesterday that the update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics was adopted, but preparations for a new one, planned for 2018/19, are already underway. Germany has now published its first conclusions from a workshop on future electron-positron colliders that are very supportive of the ILC. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , , , , , ,

More time for collaboration

| 24 March 2016 DESY and KEK are two labs that have a lot in common. They know a lot about accelerators, operated and have operated a number of them in their long and eventful histories. They are their countries’ hubs for particle physics research, but they also run accelerators for photon science. They are national labs that collaborate closely with other institutes and labs from around the world. And, notably, with each other. At the recent DESY KEK Workshop at DESY in Hamburg, Germany, the two therefore decided to extend the existing cooperation agreement by another five years.

Unplugged: new magnet concept could lower CLIC’s power bill

| 3 March 2016 Spirits lifted by a motivating talk by CERN's new Director-General, scientists attending the recent CLIC workshop say that there’s a lot that’s happening in the world of the Compact Linear Collider study. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , ,

ARUP tool shortlisted for prestigious prize

| 11 February 2016 Remember the ingenious civil engineering tool that British consultancy ARUP has developed for CERN's FCC and that is also being used for site-specific planning of the ILC? That thing where you can play around with shafts, tunnels and rock formations without leaving your desk? It's been shortlisted for a prestigious award, so keep your fingers crossed.

Here’s your physics case, once and for all

| 11 February 2016 Dear colleagues, this one is for you. All those paper writing thesis completing report submitting physicists out there: here comes a new central paper for your list of references and your reading list. It provides a comprehensive physics case for the e+e- linear collider and puts all the topics and ideas from theory, collider searches, astronomy in context to each other. It’s been published in the open-access peer-reviewed European Physical Journal C (EPJC). Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , , ,
