ILC project is entering next phase

| 12 September 2013 A committee of Japanese scientists has just recommended Kitakami mountains as a candidate construction site for the ILC. The project now has to go through international negotiations, which should take at least a few years. Meanwhile, on 28 August, Japan’s Ministry in charge of science policy (MEXT) delivered its first official national budget request for the ILC. The ILC project has now entered into the next stage.

A spin-off of ILC technology – already

| 4 April 2013 On 15 March, scientists working on the Quantum Beam Technology Program at KEK’s superconducting RF test facility (STF) confirmed the successful generation of X-rays using Inverse Compton Scattering (ICS) with superconducting radiofrequency (SCRF) acceleration technology. This is the world’s first successful implementation of ICS X-ray sources with SCRF technology. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

Exciting time for the ILC technical design

| 20 December 2012 After the official handover ceremony of the TDR draft in Tokyo last Saturday, ILC experts, policy makers and members of industry discussed the potential of building the ILC in Japan. One conclusion was that physicists from all over the world would be welcome in Japan, even though they may be considered strange by some. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , ,

Building the ILC step by step

| 8 November 2012 The Japan association of high-energy physicists has published a proposal of “phased execution” for the International Linear Collider which was accepted by the Japanese high-energy physics community. The so-called phased execution or staged approach is the plan to build a shorter ILC accelerator than the one designed in the ILC TDR, as a first step of the project.
