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?

Science First with the ILC- Keynote speech by Takeo Kawamura

8 December 2016 In his keynote at LCWS2016, former MEXT Minister Takeo Kawamura stressed that while fundamental research may have application in the long run, it's the science that is most important. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

Press statement LCWS2016

8 December 2016 A new management team will lead the Linear Collider Collaboration from January 2017. The members of this team were announced in Morioka, Japan, on Tuesday 6 December at the 2016 Linear Collider Workshop. The term of office for this new team is three years.

From Kitakami Times: Talking about 2016’s LCWS with Prof. Shinya Narita of Iwate University

20 October 2016 The editors of Kitakami Times, a newsletter about the Tohoku region and the ILC, met with Iwate University’s Professor Shinya Narita, the local head of planning for the LCWS in Morioka. He told them what’s going on, and what kind of help he’s looking for from local foreign residents.

From symmetry: You keep using that physics word

6 October 2016 Physics can often seem inconceivable. It’s a field of strange concepts and special terms. Language often fails to capture what’s really going on within the math and theories. And to make things even more complicated, physics has repurposed a number of familiar English words. Much like Americans in England, folks from beyond the realm of physics may enter to find themselves in a dream within a dream, surrounded by a sea of words that sound familiar but are still somehow completely foreign. Not to worry! Symmetry is here to help guide you with this list of words that acquire a new meaning when spoken by physicists.

Particle scientists are cool!

| 22 September 2016 Junior high-school students Kotomi Sato and Momoyo Sugawara, members of the “ILC club,” visited CERN last August with three other students to learn more about life in a big international science laboratory. They were invited to give a short debriefing during a panel discussion at an ILC symposium held on 10 September in Oshu city, where both girls said that they thought particle scientists are 'cool'! Sato has always loved science and she is determined to become a researcher at the ILC. Sugawara met many people in Geneva who greeted her in Japanese, and she felt very happy about it. "I want to study English harder," she said, "to make foreign people comfortable if the ILC is being built in my neighborhood."
