2013 Nobel Prize in Physics announcement

10 October 2013 The Nobel Prize in Physics 2013 was awarded jointly to François Englert and Peter W. Higgs "for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider" Category: Video of the week | Tagged: , , , , ,

A guided tour around the CLIC test facility

| 26 September 2013 Ever wanted a personal tour around the CLIC Test Facility (CTF3)? Then this video is for you. You will follow and listen to Frank Tecker, responsible for CTF3 operations, who will guide you around the scaled-down version of the Compact Linear Collider acceleration principle.

From symmetry magazine: Scientists look to next decades in US particle physics

| 8 August 2013 From the output of the "Snowmass" meeting, US particle physicists will chart a path to answering some of science’s most intriguing questions. More than 600 particle physicists from nearly 100 universities and laboratories came together on the University of Minnesota's Minneapolis campus to enumerate the field's most pressing scientific questions and contemplate the experiments needed to answer them.

Pixel party

25 July 2013 Three detector R&D collaborations working on tomorrow's pixel detectors for charged particles joined forces in a combined test in a beam of particles. With the successful read-out of the three devices in a single data acquisition, they reach another milestone of the EU-sponsored AIDA Project. Work continues towards a more versatile telescope infrastructure to be made available to a broad user community. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , ,

Higgs: the story of the beginning

| 11 July 2013 Hitoshi Murayama, Deputy Director of the Linear Collider Collaboration, explains the Higgs (in Japanese) in a three-part video series entitled “Universe and matter – the story of the beginning.” Category: Video of the week | Tagged: , , ,

From symmetry magazine: International Linear Collider design is ‘good to go’

27 June 2013 At a series of events held on three continents, scientists celebrated the completion of the design for a next-generation particle collider, the International Linear Collider.

Good things come in threes

27 June 2013 The last issue of LC NewsLine featured the two summary videos from the Asian and the European Technical Design Report handover event. Today we are proud to present part three: the summary of the Americas event that took place at Fermilab and culminated in the handing over of a gift-wrapped set of the report from Barry Barish to Pier Oddone. Relive the baton toss again...and again... and again. Category: Video of the week | Tagged: , ,

Press release: Next-generation particle accelerator is ready for construction

13 June 2013 Tokyo, Geneva, Chicago – 12 June 2013. A five-volume report containing the blueprint for a future particle physics project, the International Linear Collider (ILC), was published today. In three consecutive ceremonies in Asia, Europe and the Americas, the authors of the Technical Design Report for the International Linear Collider, a next-generation particle collider to complement and advance beyond the physics of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, officially handed the report over to the international oversight board for projects in particle physics, the International Committee for Future Accelerators ICFA. The Technical Design Report presents the latest, most technologically advanced and most thoroughly scrutinised design for the ILC. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , ,

Worldwide video

13 June 2013 The nature of a worldwide event happening consecutively in three regions of world is that people can only attend one of the three. So when celebrations ended in Japan and started in Europe, a video of the Asian event showed the participants in Europe what had happened during the day. Likewise, when Europe handed over the Americas, a summary video showed the key moments of both the Asian and the European celebrations. Watch these videos here.

Impressions from Hamburg

| 30 May 2013 How do you keep a bunch of physicists and engineers entertained? Give them a sense of accomplishment ("we've finished the Technical Design Report!"), a challenge ("how can we tackle the problems of the next phase?"), a sense of momentum (good signals from Japan for potentially hosting the ILC). And a bag of gummy bears. This year's first big linear collider workshop, ECFA LC2013, is in full swing at DESY in Hamburg, and more than 300 people are busy discussing results and the future. Here are some impressions. Category: Slideshow | Tagged:
