From CERN Courier: High-gradient X-band technology: from TeV colliders to light sources and more

31 May 2018 Things that start out in fundamental research quite regularly find their way into fields other than high energy physics. Take the Compact Linear Collider study CLIC, for example. CLIC's unique requirements have led to the development of a new high-gradient "X-band" acceleration technology that is attracting the interest of researchers working at light sources, in the medical sector and even art museums.

Endorsing the ILC “in the strongest way”

1 March 2018 “We have our hands around the mechanism that creates mass in nature but we need the tools to study it.” Barry Barish adds his voice to the #mylinearcollider video campaign, endorses the ILC "in the strongest way." Barish led the Global Design Effort for the ILC before he returned to LIGO and was awarded the Nobel Prize for the detection of gravitational waves. Category: Video of the week | Tagged: , ,

Mark Thomson to lead STFC

1 March 2018 Mark Thomson, professor for Experimental Particle physics at the University of Cambridge, will lead the UK's Science and Technology Facilities Council STFC from 1 April 2018. Thomson is an expert for particle flow calorimetry and detector development for future colliders like ILC and CLIC and is currently co-spokesperson for the DUNE collaboration.

From SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory: Superconducting X-Ray Laser Takes Shape in Silicon Valley

1 February 2018 The first cryomodule has arrived at SLAC. Linked together and chilled to nearly absolute zero, 37 of these segments will accelerate electrons to almost the speed of light and power an upgrade to the nation’s only X-ray free-electron laser facility.

Impressions from Iwate

| 8 December 2016 Wish you were in Iwate for last LCWS2016 workshop? Here are some impressions of Iwate, proposed region for the International Linear Collider. More than 320 participants from around the world gathered for one week to discuss the latest R&D developments, the linear collider physics case, detectors and accelerators and project management updates for the linear collider. Scientists were warmly welcomed by an enthusiastic local community of ILC supporters. They were also honoured by the presence and speeches of distinguished guests from the Japanese Federation of Diet Members and Iwate officials. - View slideshow - Lost in Tohoku?
